Fed Up with Having to Feed Your Pet Tortoise Junk?Did you know that almost all commercial Tortoise foods are made from food waste such as almond nut shells or soya husk? Did you know that many of these prepared diets that smell so strongly of fruits or flowers do so because of potent artificial attractants?
Did you know that many of these foods are totally unnatural when compared with the wild diets of these incredible animals? In many cases they are little more than a baked, extruded chemical mass of artificial colours, flavours, scents, and preservatives? A chemical soup soaked into waste fibres and with very little actual ‘food’.
EarthPro-Optimised52 is a brand new, vet checked, all-natural way of feeding tortoises, developed to replicate wild feeding by only using natural ingredients. We use no non-natural fillers such as seed husks, nut shells, Maize, soya and flours which are all too common in prepared Tortoise diets.
Tortoises have developed over vast time to be opportunistic feeders that are highly herbivorous. They are an exploring species that will graze as opportunity arises within seasonality. The wild diet of the Mediterranean species consists mainly of leafy vegetation, grasses, roots, tubers, and seasonal flowers. Fruits are taken but rarely and as a seasonal supplier.
A wild diet of this type is very high in fibre, low in protein, sodium and fats. Natural geophagy is also a vital supplier of essential minerals and vitamins, mostly from the B group.
What are the benefits of this tortoise diet?This mixture of ingredients has been developed with zoo vet oversight to ensure your tortoise's diet is perfect to help achieve healthy growth. This feed has been specially developed for the many species of tortoises from the Testudo family, including the Russian tortoise, Mediterranean tortoises and Hermann's tortoise, and it is highly palatable, making it ideal for tortoise pets that are a little fussy. Other species of tortoise, such as the tropical tortoises and Indian star tortoises, will still enjoy the food but might prefer other feeds. The food is also very digestible, meaning that your tortoise will produce less waste than when they eat grasses and other feeds.
