1. Can this be used for my box turtle?
This product is meant for tortoises, not turtles.
2. My tortoise isn't interested, how do I get them to bite the block?
It may take time for your tortoise to show interest in the block; it will take patience if they do not take to the block right away. Some owners have had to reintroduce the block a month or two later after trying, but they will usually show interest eventually. If you do not have any luck right away, just keep trying, romaine lettuce makes a great calcium booster in the meantime.
3. Can I use this for my baby tortoise?
You can use this for a tort of any age.
