I'm not too sure on some of the thing you are feeding your tort. Like avacado, I've never thought of that, but I know for people it is fattening. I am not too keen on zuchini, green beans or broccoli either. I don't know if those are per se bad or good.

I prefer to feed mostly filler greens like red leaf lettuce, romaine, green leaf lettuce, dandelion, cactus pads and fruit and hibiscus flowers and leaves. For fruits I feed, papaya, melon (whatever is in season), strawberries, mushrooms, banana (occasionally), apricots, peaches, plums, nectarines, mangos (when I can pry them from my husband) and grapes. Bananas are fed very sparingly here too. There is much more other random things I throw in but this is what is the easiest to get in the local fruit market here. What ever is in season is what I feed. I know there is alot of info out there and everyone has different opinions especially about what to feed the torts. Take it for what it is worth and try different things. I prefer the filler greens and the softer fruits.
