My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and Reptile Rescue. The Crown of Thorns is toxic to tortoises. He needs to see a Herp Vet as soon as possible for supportive care. : I can locate a Her Vet with a State or Country. lease let me know if you need a Herp Vet.
