Indian Star Tortoises are mostly herbivorous, feeding on grasses, fallen fruit, flowers and leaves of succulent plants, but will occasionally also eat carrion.

 

This species is quite popular in the exotic pet trade and is hence also found in Thailand, where it is known as tao dao india. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
