    I have a box turtle that came to me almost 20 years ago. He'll be 20 this summer. I have been a work in progress in how to care for for my turtle. He's a picky eater but he'll eat this as a staple in his diet so of course I like it too.

    Box turtles

    This is the only food I can get my box turtles to eat. They have done very well on it for over 10 years now.

    He loves it!!

    By on

    I have a baby turtle, and he loves it. The chunks are a little big for his mouth yet, so I put it in a food processor to chop it up more, also added some crickets and his vitamin balls. My only dislike is it's a big can of food, I'm afraid it will spoil before he can even eat half the can. Smaller portions would be better.

    A total LIFE SAVER!

    By on

    We have a VERY picky turtle, and have tried all kinds of different foods - she only likes strawberries and earthworms...and they have to be alive. This is the FIRST store bought food she will touch! Thank you! It has been very hard to find a balanced diet with her, but I think we now have an option.

    very picky box turtle

    By on

    I have a very picky box turtle who prefers food that is fresh or alive. I got this hoping he would like it. He crawled right over it and didn’t even try it!!!

    Good quality

    By on

    I recently rescued a box turtle from the highway and this food was recommended. It smells good, at least to me, and seems like a great quality food. But, Homer the turtle will not eat it. I would recommend it since it seems like such a great product. Homer just prefers strawberries. :)

    My tortoises love this food. It’s a blend that they really like. I had tried giving them pellets and they wouldn’t touch them. I give it an A+

    Sulcata said no

    By on

    This was everything that the description said. However my sulcata tortoise did not want anything to do with it… But he’s extremely picky so I was not surprised. Only thing that would make this better is if it came with a replaceable lid.

    box turtle food looks good, but.. . . .

    By on

    The food looked good, the bits of carrot and other bits embedded in the gel looked good from my standpoint. But, I'm not a turtle, and neither of my box turtles were too keen to eat it. I thought it a good departure from the daily romaine, hard boiled egg, nightcrawlers, and banana. I've been trying to get them interested in it for a couple of weeks. No go.
