Your Shopping Basket
Low protein, high fibre tortoise food combining a range of natural foods, including grasses and edible weeds, which are chopped and then formed into cobs, before being gently dried.
Because they are not cooked at high temperatures or finely ground, more of the natural goodness is retained.
With a natural scent to aid palatability and added calcium and vitamin D3 for healthy nutrition, this low in protein, high fibre advanced food is suitable for all Mediterranean type tortoises, including Hermann's, Marginated, Spur Thigh and Horsefield's Tortoises, as well as African Spurred Tortoises (G. Sulcata).
It can also be used for other herbivorous reptiles such as Iguanas and Uromastyx.
- Low Protein.
- Added Calcium and D3.
- High Fibre, including essential long fibres.
- Low grain content.
- Includes 29 natural weeds and grasses.
Although experts agree that feeding natural, high fibre plants is the best approach this can be difficult, particularly during the winter.
Artificial foods can be used to supplement a more natural diet but avoid highly processed, extruded pellets that are typically based on Maize or Wheat.
These can have high protein or carbohydrate levels and the fibre they contain is typically ground into very small particles.
Instead, use one that is based around natural weeds or grasses, has a low protein level and contains fibre (plant material) that is not highly processed and retains its natural structure.
If it contains added calcium or vitamin D then this can also be useful. Artificial foods should not form 100% of the tortoise's diet.
