INTRODUCTION The tortoise is a living fossil having survived since the dawn of the age of reptiles, 200 million years ago. Collection for exportation and habitat destruction have dramatically reduced populations in their native countries around the Mediterranean like France, Spain, Italy, the former Yugoslavia, Turkey, Greece and northern Africa. In Britain, with wet summers and cold damp winters, they are outside their distribution range, but if basic guidelines are followed, a captive tortoise can have as long and happy a life as possible.

The diet of Mediterranean tortoises in the wild consists almost entirely of herbaceous and succulent vegetation, including grasses, flowers, twigs and very occasionally fallen fruit.

How much to feed? - Tortoise Trust.org

We receive a considerable number of questions on the subject of how much to feed juveniles. We have selected one very typical letter which highlights the problems we all face when attempting to raise healthy animals with 'perfect' shell development.
