Feeding Ornate ornatas gets a bit tricky as the traditional diet to keep these lovely box turtles in optimal health varies drastically according to age, as well as environment. They need access to a wide variety of foods, and the access needs to promote foraging skills in addition to providing balanced nutrition. During the spring, summer and fall it is much easier to maintain a wide variety of turtle foods in the garden, including livebearer fish in the pond, crickets, worms and other live/fresh food sources. Brumation dampens their appetite and slows metabolism, but warm days still need to have enticing food available. Mazuri does the trick by floating on the turtle pond. Each little breeze moves the floating pellets, triggering an immediate response. According to the turtle's response, Mazuri Aquatic Turtle Food must taste good, too! So grateful our local zoo made the recommendation to use Mazuri when the turtle is inside, and to individually seal a week's with of food at a time with a Food Saver, so the open bag doesn't go stale.
Came very quickly and packed very well also great customer service
Good product at a great price. Can't beat that. I'd recommend Chewey
I have 7 redneck turtles and they love these pellets. I tried the larger ones and they like the smaller pellets best.
I purchased this food for my very picky yellow bellied slider and to my delight she loves them! I was nervous bc she’s very picky and only ever wants to eat meat. I got these bc of the vegetable and calcium content and Am very happy with it. After a few weeks you can see the difference, she looks much healthier.
Trying to find the best food options for my 3 turtles and I feel their diet was lacking before this food. They showed no signs of illness but after reading about mazuri and deciding its better than the floating sticks I was feeding them, I made the switch. They showed no hesitation and immediately devoured the new food. I'm really glad I bought the 25 pound bag because it's a great value! Thanks again chewy!
I tried this food because my aquatic turtles were being really picky eaters with a different brand of pellets. Although they don't always eat this brand, they do go for it more than they ate ReptoMin.
We have about 60 turtles in our pond and they love this food plus it’s a great value
My baby seems to like better than those sticks. Smells like they are tastier! We’ll see how he does.
My turtle loves this food so much.. I feed him the pellets five times a day. I kept them in the fridge for freshness
