Apologies also-I think I've posted this question again as as part of another post-my error!
hi i find most tortoises enjoy smooth sowthistle, hawkbit and cats ear go down well.the plantain i feed are hoary ,greater and ribwort plantain.i think Sarah sells the seeds in the sw shop on this site.also if you google images they are fairly distinctive and common you may well have seen them growing near your home.once they are warmed up 65f is adequate specially if the sun is out,as they will bask and and control their own temperature.
these are my own opinions do with them what you will.
