Questions & Answers

10 Customer Questions

Is this a low starch version like the other Mazuri Tortoise Foods you sell?
Answer by ChewyNov 25, 2019
This formula is not low starch. Mazuri's low starch formulas are the Mazuri Tortoise Diet LS Food and the Mazuri Small Tortoise LS Food.

Is this a good feed for sulcatas ?
Answer by ChewyFeb 22, 2021
Dry-land herbivores such as your gopher, sulcata, plant-loving reptile or Galapagos tortoise also will benefit best from this pellet-form food that’s high in antioxidants.

Can this be fed to water turtles ?
Answer by ChewyMay 24, 2023
This formula is suitable for tropical tortoises from wetter climates and/or omnivorous species.

Can this be a substitute for the protein needed for Redfoots?
Answer by ChewyMar 06, 2023
This feed is recommended for a Red Foot Tortoise and will provide 100% of the nutrients needed per day, including protein.

Way too big

Bought this with the intention of feeding my tortoises, but the pellets were way too big my dogs food isn't even that big have 2 25 pound bags I can't use and no where to donate them near me definitely a waste of money

Better than the new stuff.

I suppose my tortoises (Leopards and Redfoots) would eat the new Mazuri tortoise food if I didn't feed them anything else, but they basically ignored it. They like the original better, and eat it, whether mixed with their greens, or by itself. I am pleased with this product.

Our tortoises love it

We have several Redfoot Tortoises which we have rescued thru out the years. This food has always been a staple for them with their special treats . Easy to serve them (ours like it pretty moist). You know they are getting their proper nourishment when making this a part of their diet.

Mazuri chow

My tortoises love this as an addition to their salads! Easy to add to water to soften and toss on top!

Tortoises love it!

My leopard tortoises love these pellets, especially the baby. These are the puffy pellets (think Cheetos) and, moistened with water, they devour them. I buy the large bag because I’m not going to risk running out between orders.

Ruby, the red foot tortoise will not eat it! Hoping for a refund.

Great product

Can’t go wrong with this product. I have many species of turtles and tortoises that all enjoy Mazuri products in addition to natural, fresh food diets. Glad Chewy carries this for fast, easy delivery.
