Is there any thing else I can buy from the supermarket, like Lambs Lettuce?


Buying from a supermarket will always be soft foods, tortoises need fiber hence weeds and flowers.
Romaine lettuce can be used for hydration during hot times, but it has very little nutrician for tortoises.
Walking around your area and collecting weeds and seeds works well. Thats how I started many years ago:0)
