Can tortoises eat grapes ?

Yes, turtles can eat grapes. With a few exceptions, terrestrial turtles are vegetarians, so feeding them is not a problem. Often they prefer brightly colored fruits or flowers, especially red ones. Apples, pears, plums, tomatoes and beets are cut into small pieces, but ripe bananas can be given entirely (small turtles Рwithout peel, large Рalong with the skin).

You can offer your turtle strawberries, raspberries, black currants, grapes, ripe cherries, peaches, apricots, sweet watermelon, oranges, tangerines. Of the fruit-bones (cherry, peach, apricot, etc.), you need to remove the stone, if there is a chance that your pet can swallow them. Some turtles eat onions.

It is important that the ration of the turtle was diverse. It happens that the tortoise for weeks stubbornly refuses a product, and then suddenly, without any apparent reason, greedily throws it at him.

All turtles like salad, gladly munch parsley, young beans and peas, fresh pea plant leaves (beets, parsley, spinach and other plants containing oxalates, should be given in limited form). All solid vegetables (for example, cabbage) must be cut into small pieces. Carrots and beets are peeled. In spring and summer, a variety of flowers diversify the diet, especially the turtles like the flowers of red clover, dandelion and coltsfoot.
