Description

The rough edible surface helps prevent overgrown beaks as well as curb unwanted chewing behavior. There are two cuttlebones per package.

    Great product! It will start to deteriorate in the water if you put the whole thing in there. I suggest cutting it into smaller pieces so your turtle can eat it before it falls apart! That's what I do.

  • Will Buy Again

    My tortoise loves these things and I was happy to find them at a good price on Chewy. He loves chewing on them occasionally to get extra calcium. Plus I don't have to buy the bird ones and pull off the metal piece. These are perfect.

  • Very Disappointed

    By on

    I just received my first order with your company. I was very pleased with all items with the exception of the cuttle bone. The cuttle bone box was open and inside I found two that are vastly different sizes and discolored. I dont feel comfortable giving these to my tortoise. Photo will not upload to your site.

  • For my chickens

    By on

    I actually bought these to hang in my chicken coop for extra calcium. If you have laying hens that get boreed and like to peck - these are great :o}

    I give these to my water turtles and also my tortoises. I always have one available for them. They eat them when they feel the need for additional calcium.

  • Not good apparently

    By on

    I have a musk turtle that my husband rescued a year ago when it was just a baby( size of a quarter) and now he's the size of a doughnut and I bought him the turtle bones and he doesn't like it...he won't even try it! I'm glad they weren't expensive or I'd been really upset.
