Description

Keep your tortoise’s beak healthy while providing him with wholesomely chewable nutrition with the Zoo Med Banquet Block Tortoise Food. It’s made with a unique blend of spineless cactus and other vegetables like alfalfa and carrots inside a calcium base. The cactus and vegetables are a great source of nutrients for your pal, and the block provides essential calcium to keep him healthy and thriving. Every time your tortoise chews on the block to get at the goodies inside, it actively works to prevent his beak from overgrowing. It’s great for providing food and an enrichment activity while you’re away from home, and it’s ready to be used straight out of the package―simply place by your pal and let the beak-friendly chewing begin. Plus, it’s proudly made in the USA with no artificial preservatives.

  • Great Treat

    My turtles love them. I will buy again. I had to break them up though. Other than that, they were fine. I would definitely purchase them again.

  • Not a Winner

    My Tank ignores it, which surprised me. I’d stick with a toilet paper roll or a piece of fruit to play with next time.

  • My Russian Tortoise Has Never Touched It

    By on

    Maybe we just have her spoiled on all fresh food. She just sits on this. I was hoping she would chew on it some at least for the calcium and help trim her little beak. (Not sure if that is what it is called on a tortoise, but that is what I call it)
