Questions & Answers

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.

How long can a 25lb bag stay fresh? I have two adult Hermann's tortoises. Just want to make sure it's not too much food that will go bad.
Answer by ChewySep 08, 2020
In general, unopened dry pet foods have a shelf life of one year. Every expiration date will be different for each bag, as different batches are constantly being produced. The expiration date will be stamped on the bag. To maintain freshness, keep dry foods in their original packaging and store in a cool, dry location.

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.

How much do you feed a small tortoise daily? Not yet a year old.
Answer by ChewySep 25, 2022
It is recommended to feed approximately 2-4% of body your pet's weight.

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.

In the product description it says Sulcata tortoises but after I got it it didn't look like the Mazuri pellets I've always fed him, so I called my vet and she said this can NOT be his pelleted diet as it will cause health problems. So now I'm stuck with a massive bag of food that my tortoise can't eat after I had dumped it out of the bag into a bin.

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.

Cheaper than previous diet.

It was a little hard to switch them onto this for there main diet but once completed it is much cheaper than romaine and the Rep-Cal tortoise food.

Used to love this.

I used to be a huge fan of this box, but not anymore. The clasps for the top break so easy. The bottom is always very flimsy. When I got these boxes years ago, the quality was definitely better. Disappointed.

My Hermann’s Tortoise loves to eat Mazuri soaked and mashed up. He just gobbles it up.

No complaints here.

I have both a sulcata and leopard tortoise and this is their staple food that they get along with fresh greens and vegetables. They love it no complaints here.

Tortoise Loves it

My little kiddle Indian Star Tortoise "Squirt" loves this food.He was a month old when I got him and now he is not quite three months and steadily growing and gaining weight. I mix Mazuri with small cut up pieces prickly pear cactus,different lettuces,zucchini,rose hips, hibiscus.I vary his diet every day but he does get the Mazuri everyday mixed in with his veggies.
