I give mine collards,endive,chicory.i rip the leafs off and mix them together and wash them off then put them in a zip lock bad and my rhino gets all three plus tortoise chow,and some grapes as a treat.There all staple foods,collards are good for them.

Well collards are a staple so thats good if he likes those,plus good calcium to.Hopefully he will enjoy the tortoise chow too.

Well in greens i though it was a form of body language and there way to communicate,and that a head bob means there in charge or the boss,and there territory.But i guess its alittle the same in rhino's to,if its side to side and up and down i thought it mean there really pissed lol.:)
