Hi all,

I'm still having a hard time providing variety of food sources for our hatchling/ young sulcata.

Does anyone have advice for places you can purchase good foods online for your sulcata? What do you all feed your hatchling/ young sulcatas?

Thanks all!

Lots of ideas here:

And more here:

You can buy things like Mazuri, or herbal hay and seed mixes from tortoisesupply.com, or dried leaf options from Kapidolo farms, but most stuff you either grow or find. There isn't really a place to buy the right types of weeds, leaves, flowers and succulents.

Now that it’s sunny & warm again, try picking some dandelion blossoms & feeding those. A few moistened Mazuri pellets as well will go a long way. Handfuls of grass & plantain & other good weeds. A handful of grape leaves chopped up, hibiscus, rose of sharon too.

Definitely get some Mazuri (5M21) moisten a few nuggets, and get your Sully eating a few of those. Then sprinkle on the good greens.


Good luck
