Benedict's in the cucumber patch?!

Lion Learners Tortoise Benedict and Beatirce


This is Benedict, one of our lovely little horsfield tortoises. Tortoises are reptiles, just like our snakes and bearded dragons. Our tortoises love to dig! When its warm enough outside we make sure to put our tortoises on the grass to make sure they have plenty of time to dig around in tht soft soil and eat their favourite food- dandelions! Our tortoises are almost completely vegetarian, unlike our snakes who are entirely carnivorous.

 Tortoises do enjoy cucumber as a treat, but it's too watery to give them much nutrition.
