Your Healthy Tortoise Diet Guide

Below is a small selection of the types of food your tortoise can eat and things it must avoid.

It is very important to vary your tortoises diet as much as possible.
Fruit should only be fed sparingly or only to tortoises such as Redfoots that eat fruit naturally.
It is also important to give your tortoise a calcium and vitamin supplement with their food such as Reptavite or Nutrobal
