Rated 5 out of 5 by Tolilly My tortoise simply loves the stuff
Its been three years since I adopted my tortoise, I have looked and looked and tried many different kinds of food. This is the only one I have been able to get him to eat. He prefers it over any of his treats even, it has made life much simpler.
Only problem I have had is the wild birds trying to chase the tortoise from his food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pflegadocious Only dry prepared food my tortoises will eat.
Excellent product. Berry aroma entices the two Russian Desert Tortoises to come over to the food dish and start snacking. I have tried half a dozen other dry prepared tortoise foods; the Pretty Pets large tortoise sticks are the only one they will eat. I buy the 3lb. bag of large sticks and they remain fresh for a long time. I add them to a dish of water, they soak up the water and inflate in size, and the tortoises can easily ingest them. Not sure what I would use as a food staple for the tortoises without this product. Only other foods I feed them are fresh romaine and dandelions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joeyw Great for small tortoises.
I have large tortoises which love the Pretty Pets 3 lb. large sticks that you add water to and eat. This is the same formula but in bite size for very small tortoises. I use this for the small tortoises and once they get big enough to handle the larger size I graduate them to that.
The hardest part is just getting them to eat it as they naturally eat plants. If for some reason, they don't take to it right away mix it with broccoli (they love broccoli) and just by accident they'll eat it. And once they do they'll be hooked on it.
I like these pellets (big and small size) that you add water to because that means I don't have to bother putting a water bowl out because they get more than enough water just from the pellets after they have been soaked in water. Though every once in awhile I simulate rain water with a hose so they can get water that way as they would in the wild.
