Tortoise and turtle feed: The right diet for tortoises and turtles
They are a popular pet, fascinating their owners with their slow and graceful movements, and can live to be several decades old when they are in good hands. Tortoises and turtles are quiet reptiles and are popular with children. However, they also need good, appropriate care to feel completely comfortable. Tortoise and turtle feed is the basis for a long and healthy life. Ultimately your pets should not want for anything. You should therefore always choose the tortoise and turtle feed according to the breed-specific pet requirements, because tortoises have different daily feeding requirements than turtles.
Turtles feed predominantly on plants. However, animal proteins in the form of insects and fish should also be regularly on the menu. With a one-sided and unbalanced diet, the animals are quickly prone to deficiency symptoms. These are often noticeable in the form of shell deformation or can lead to organ damage. Turtle feed should therefore contain an appropriate mixture of plants and animal proteins. In addition, you can equip the terrarium with water lettuce or floating aquatic plants. Even though they are so unassuming, turtles are also good hunters. In addition to turtle feed, there are also a few water fleas, amphipods or mosquito larvae that you can place in the terrarium.
Which tortoise and turtle feed is suitable for tortoises?
While turtles also require animal proteins, tortoises mainly feed on herbs and plants. A high proportion of raw fibre is very important for tortoise feed and or flavourings. With an appropriate and balanced diet, you can support your pet’s natural growth, prevent deficiencies and strengthen the immune system.
