    Hello everyone I was wondering what other people thought about feeding your small tortoise baby food out of a jar. The ingredients on one of them that I have are just two ingredients carrots and water.

    What do you think?

    For a sick tortoise it can be used in the soaking water

    Otherwise it has no place in the diet

    Your tortoise needs to tear at food to keep its beak in shape. It also needs plenty of fibre - not pureed mush.

    Feed unprocessed fresh food

    I will sometimes water some down and use it as a 'dressing' on foods that they aren't sure about eating. (The don't like chard much, but when I have a lot of it I dress it up a bit)

    Carrots are not a good food for most species anyway.
