High fiber level and Low Starch - Grass hay based diet.
Contains vitamins A and vitamin E - For eye and skin health.

Feeding Direction: Feed tortoises approximately 1-4% of 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. Proper
humidity levels are also critical for health and proper growth of herbivorous reptiles.
Fresh fruits and vegetables may be provided, but at no more than 20% of the total diet.
Thoroughly wash feeding and watering bowls on a regular basis. It is always good practice to
wash hands thoroughly after feeding and/or handling pets. This diet is not for human
consumption.
IMPORTANT: A feeding program is only as effective as the management practices followed. Always provide reptiles with adequate natural light or a light source which supplies sufficient UV radiation between the wavelengths of 280 and 315 nm.

Storage Conditions: For best results store contents of open paper sack in container with sealing lid. Store in a cool (75°F or colder), dry (approximately 50% RH) location. Freezing will not harm the diet and may extend freshness. Use within 1 year of bag manufacturing.
