Feeding Instructions

Feed animal's approximately 1-4% of body weight per day, on a dry matter basis. Feed consumption will vary with environmental temperatures, level of activity and animal life stage. Mazuri Small Tortoise Diet LS should be a quarter to half (25 to 50%) of the total daily intake, with grasses and produce for the remaining portion. Provide animals with good quality fresh grass, or hay for small tortoises. Fresh produce food items - greens, vegetables and fruits - may be included in the daily food offering, but should be no more than half (50%) of the total diet. Fruit or high sugar vegetables: Offer no more than 5% by weight of total diet. Use vegetables and greens low in oxalate like kale, turnip greens, and squash until the animals become acclimated to diet. Always provide animals with plenty of fresh, clean water. Proper humidity levels are also critical for health and proper growth of herbivorous reptiles.

Transition Instructions

It may be necessary to soften Mazuri Small Tortoise Diet LS with water until the animals become acclimated to the diet. If moistened, the diet should be replaced at least twice daily.

    Phenomenal food!!

    By ashms on Sep 4, 2021

    My ornate wood turtle is so so picky about pellets. She refused to eat them for so long until I bought these. I mix them with the aquatic turtle pellet and she LOVES eating these.

    Good for some... not all

    By Makayla on Jan 14, 2021

    I really liked the idea of this diet with all the claims on the front of the bag. However, I did not read the back of the back at the ingredients/guaranteed analysis before I bought it. Totally my fault. This sounds like a great diet for reptiles that digest proteins, sugars and fruits but for my hermanns tortoise, I don't think I will be feeding him this very often or at all. I may be acting like a total mom but 20% protein sounds like a lot and I know they are not supposed to have a lot of it. It also contains apple pomace, cane molasses and sucrose. Which I know for a fact hermanns are not supposed to have fruits (and their sugars). I might feed this very sparingly as a "treat" since I really liked the idea of this diet with all the claims on the front of the bag.

    By Nova on May 2, 2020

    My uromastyx, Kiwi the ornata, LOVES these. I keep them in a mini bowl beside his fresh veggie dish mixed with his lentils and bee pollen and he picks these out to cromch on them.

    Not for my guy

    By HeatherM7 on Feb 16, 2020

    Our little guy won’t touch it. We even moistened it with warm water and he turned his nose up. He would starve before eating it. Guess he’s just picky.
