Posted: 28/11/2015 by Tom

"Edible Plants for Tortoises in the UK" by Linda King.

Lin has spent her holidays for many years studying tortoises in their natural habitat, focussing on the plants on which they feed. Long ago she became known as the Tlady* by local people in the areas which she frequented. 

The book is also based on years of botanical studies & details of many domestic plants which have a suitable chemical composition for tortoises to consume are described.

The book is an invaluable resource for tortoise keepers & is priced at 7.50.

*Tlady - tortoise lady - there are a number of imitators, mostly pretend 'breeders' - beware!
