Might be a silly question, but how can you avoid overfeeding your tort? hes only 18 months, and he just seems to eat and eat, and the last thing i want is for him to be at risk from pyramiding. We feed him everyday, usually a big leaf of romanie lettuce and some dandilion leaves and the odd piece of cumcumber a few times a week, all with a sprinkle of nurtibal.
any feeback would be appriciated!

hi sarah, torts will eat and eat and eat forever if food is put infront of them, if he is only 18 months old then stick to the same quantity and have a time schedule daily, 1-2 leaves sounds fine, but try and find more variety as there is loads more weeds about, lke plantain, clover etc, but remember even over feeding on the correct diet can do harm :)
