Feeding Instructions

Feed free choice and change daily. Moisten pellets with water to stimulate feeding behavior and create a flavorful mash that tortoises love. Many tortoises enjoy lettuce; however diets made of mostly lettuce are unnaturally high in protein and low in fiber. If your tortoise will only eat lettuce, thoroughly mix small amounts of lettuce into moistened Natural Grassland Tortoise Food. Slowly reduce the amount of lettuce offered at each feeding until your tortoise has switched to Natural Grassland Tortoise Food. Always provide clean drinking water (use Zoo Med's Repti Safe water conditioner to treat tap water). Store unused food in a cool, dry area.

  • Uromastyx not too crazy about it

    By on

    Bought if for my uromastyx. He/She (too young to tell) not a big fan of it. I got it for extra nutrition to vary diet. Works well if you moisten it first. Then mash it up. Maybe would work for a turtoise or turtle.

  • It’s Amazing grass!

    By on

    Our Russian loves this stuff! I can imagine it’s probably like shredded wheat for humans so I serve it right on up with strawberries.

  • Picky eater

    By on

    Unfortunately my angry little girl refuses to even try this food. The pellets are also very large, which may be part of it.

    This is great food and easy to use. Our tortoise was used to lettuce snd broccoli because we had just gotten him snd didnt know any better. After doing some research online we found this product and read the directions on how to transition our tortoise over to it. Worked great!
