Day 325: A lesson about the internet


As Herman’s grazing time outside dwindled, the guardian was once again scanning the produce section for new, but healthy things for Herman to eat. She’d been following startortoise, whose beautiful Indian star tortoises loved the okra (AKA lady fingers) they got once a week. So, when she found some in the grocery store she bought a few to see if Herman would eat them. He loved them. Which immediately made the guardian suspicious. A quick check on The Tortoise Table’s plant database confirmed that okra was not, in fact, an approved food for Hermann’s tortoises. Perhaps next time she’d check the database first, before feeding Herman something she’d seen being fed to other species of tortoises.
