Taraxum officinale, Dandelion is an all-time tortoise favorite!
Dandelion is best fed when the leaves are young, but allowing a few plants to grow until flowering will provide them with a favorite snack that no tortoise can turn down, bright yellow blossoms!
Dandelion is high in dietary fiber, Calcium, Vitamins A, C, and K, and is low in Phosphorus.
Offer younger leaves in moderation with a highly varied diet. Older leaves contain a higher level of oxalates, feed occasionally as part of a varied diet. Dandelion also acts like a mild diuretic.
