    Red Foot negative

    By Sparkles on Jun 24, 2020

    My Red Foot (Sparkles) did not like this at all. She is picky though. I gave it one star because it was a waste of money in my case.

    Good Stuff

    By wenders4324 on Jul 2, 2019

    All three of my young tortoises love this food with the freeze dried veggies and fruit. They come running when I put it out. I do soak it first for about four minutes. My tortoises are very small and young

    My tortoise loves it.

    By McLaughlin on Mar 16, 2019

    This stuff is great. We adopted a tortoise that had been eating crappy pellets her whole life. The switch to this stuff was a little difficult for her, but wow, it's made quite a difference. She's happier, more active, and her skin and shell are looking amazing.

    turtle food

    By sally on Oct 31, 2018

    I have him in a place with fresh grass and his mineral/food block and we feed him fresh veggies too, but, I wanted to make sure he had everything he needed so the free choice food makes me not worry
