Description

Keep your tortoise’s beak healthy while providing him with wholesomely chewable nutrition with the Zoo Med Banquet Block Turtle 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.

  • Good option

    By on

    My box turtle has taken his time on eating this. However it is large. He bit it in halve right away. Moves it around his habitat and eats on it now and then. Good to make sure they have this option for the minerals they need. Better than a cuttle bone.

  • They love it!

    By on

    I have box turtles and I used to use the pet store cuttle bone, and they didn't take to it much. They love this one! It has a nice smell to it, which is why I think they like it so much. I'd recommend this 100%!

    it is larger than I thought it would be. It should last the summer. Right now she's in hibernation (Dec) so I don't know if she actually likes it yet

  • My Sulcata Tortoise Love it.

    By on

    I think it's great that they are offering things for tortoise also. We have a 2 year old Sulcata Tortoise Tortimer who we think of as one of our hard shell kids. Tortimer loves this more than his plain cuttlebones.

  • Easy way to give hatchlings nutrients

    By on

    Read that hatchlings need this. Set down in their habitat. Have not seen them nibble on it yet, so cannot give 5 stars. Like convenience of it.

  • Tortoise not a Fan

    By on

    The Leopard Tortoise doesn't seem to be fond of this, but we'll keep it in there just in case he decides it isn't scary.

  • seems like a great idea, but not for small torts

    By on

    Bought for my small russian tortoise, didnt really work well for him and had to throw it out. Probably better for larger tortoises!
