Feeding Directions
  • Feed tortoises approximately 1-4% of body weight per day. This diet should be provided to tortoises at 80% or more of their daily intake. < >Feed consumption will vary with environmental temperatures, level of activity and animal lifestage. It is not necessary to moisten pellets with water. However, soaking the product may help to acclimate tortoises to the diet.
  • Feed with good quality grass hay. If desired, feed fresh fruits and vegetables.
    • Use at most 5% fruit and 20% vegetables by weight of total diet.
  • Always provide animal with plenty of fresh, clean water. Proper humidity levels are also critical for health and proper growth of herbivorous.*

IMPORTANT: A feeding program is only as effective as the management practices followed. Always provide reptiles with adequate natural light or a light source which supplies sufficient UV radiation between the wavelengths of 280 and 315 nm.
