  • Feed tortoises between 1 – 4% of their body weight per day.
    • A 10 lb. (4.5 kg) tortoise will typically consume between 1/2 cup (45 g) to 2 cups (180 g) per day depending on activity level, environmental temperatures, and life stage.
  • It is not necessary to moisten pellets with water. However, soaking the product may help to acclimate tortoises to the diet. If moistened, the diet should be replaced at least twice daily.
  • Provide good quality forage such as grass hay or browse and fresh, clean water daily.
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables may be provided, but at no more than 20% of the total diet.
  • Thoroughly wash feed and water bowls on a regular basis. It is always good practice to wash hands thoroughly after feeding and/or handling animals. This diet is not for human consumption.

Important: Always provide reptiles with adequate natural light or a light source that supplies sufficient UV radiation between the wavelengths of 280 and 315 nm. Proper humidity levels are also critical for health and growth of reptiles.

Storage Conditions
For best results, reseal the bag between uses or store contents of open paper sack in container with sealing lid. Store in a cool (75⁰F/24⁰C or colder), dry (approximately 50% RH) location free from rodents and insects. Do not offer moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may result in illness, performance loss or death. Freezing will not harm the diet and may extend freshness. Use within 1 year of bag manufacturing or "Best if Used By" date.
