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.

    My Hermanns tortoise loves to bite things but he bit this once and must not have liked the cactus flavor. It sat there for days and I threw it out. Unfortunate.

    Zoo Med Banquet Block are Awesome!

    By on

    Awesome, great for my turtles! Have seven turtles and their beaks get too long, so the Zoo Med Banquet Block keeps those beaks short. Plus, the Zoo Med Banquet Block is made with healthy and nutritional natural delights that my turtles love!

    NOT FOOD, but amazing for calcium intake

    By on

    The title of this item is misleading. It is NOT a complete food for a tortoise. HOWEVER it is a great way to increase calcium intake with a picky tort. It took my 1 yr old sulcata approx 1 month to even consider the block, but once Tardis got a taste or two now will regularly use the block for calcium intake and also helps wear down its “beak”

    Not a fan of this

    By on

    My tortoise won’t touch this and it I feel the shape makes it less appealing and harder to use.

    Tortoise doesn't touch it but the dog likes it. Why is a review required to have 50 characters?
