What plants can I put in my tortoise's vivarium?

Hello,

What type of tortoise do you have?

I have a Hermann tortoise and would like to make his habitat better with a plant for him to hide in

Hi,

Hermans tortoises are wonderful pets, but be prepared that if you decide to place a plant or plants in the Viv, they may not last too long. Hermans tortoises are notorious grazers and the plants may be devoured. I will be happy to give you a list of safe plants for decorating. Hope this helps. Joan
