Feed along with fresh, clean water. Plant eating reptiles will consume 1-4% of bodyweight per day, although food intake will vary due to environmental temperature, activity, and life stage. Diet may be fed dry, soaked, or mixed with greens and/or salad. Transition tortoises to Mazuri® Tortoise LS at 1 year of age or when they are able to eat the larger particle size.
Appropriate supplemental food items should be provided to your reptile. Always provide quality forage such as fresh hay or browse. Produce should consist primarily of leafy greens, with fruit and high sugar vegetables limited to 5% or less of total diet to minimize GI tract disturbances. Offer vegetables and greens low in oxalate like kale, turnip greens and squash. Thoroughly wash feeding and/or watering bowls on a regular basis. It is always good practice to wash hands thoroughly after feeding and/or handling pets or other animals. Not for human consumption.
IMPORTANT: A feeding program is only as effective as the management practices followed. Proper humidity levels are critical for health and proper growth of herbivorous reptiles. Always provide reptiles with adequate natural light or a light source which supplies sufficient UV radiation between the wavelengths of 280 and 315 nm.
