I hear that carrots, squashes, and romaine lettuce is good for them.

My RESes don\'t like the carrots.. maybe because they\'re still too young. But they love romaine, especially the red leaves.

You have to watch about giving too much broccoli, spinach, cabbage family or bananas. These deplete, I think it is Vit A. If you are lucky enough to find a good veggie yours will eat use that, but mix it up. Mine is very picky and I can only get him to eat romaine right now. Carrots are suppose to be very good, but mine wont eat it. My sisters turtoise loved grape leaves. I havent tried them yet. Dandelion also, but if you get them from outside, becareful of any pesticides or herbicides that may have been sprayed

Yeah, they eat in the wild raw veggies, so no cooking needed. There are more vitamins when it is raw. Cooking depletes them.
