Exo Terra Juvenile Forest Tortoise Food - Soft Pellets, 17.6oz
Exo Terra Juvenile Forest Tortoise Food is carefully formulated to provide complete and balanced nutrition to young forest tortoises such as red-footed tortoises (Chelonoidis carbonaria). This diet is high in fiber and contains a moderate amount of protein, formulated with real food ingredients and fortified with optimal levels of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. No additional supplementation is necessary.
It is best practice to offer fresh vegetation for the majority of your tortoise's diet. However, well-balanced prepared diets like Exo Terra Juvenile Forest Tortoise Food add essential variety to their nutrition and are good to have on hand as a backup in case of emergency.
Instructions for Use:
Every morning, portion out slightly more food than your tortoise can eat in one day. Remove any uneaten food and clean the dish at the end of each day. Pellet diets can have a dehydrating effect on their own, so always provide a bowl of fresh water to make sure your tortoise stays well hydrated.
If you have a picky eater, Exo Terra Juvenile Forest Tortoise Food can be moistened with a small amount of water or fruit juice before feeding to increase palatability. Some tortoises are more likely to accept softer, soaked pellets.
After opening, store Exo Terra Juvenile Forest Tortoise Food in a cool, dry place.
