Hey i was wondering if my Russian Shelly could have some pumpkin guts. She will only get them today and maybe next year.
Yes, you can feed all of the pumpkin. It is a natural dewormer too. I feed it all year to my leopards and Russian. I freeze it and then will feed now fresh, then again in the spring and a couple times during the summer when the weather is more rip for getting parasites.
Thanks all she loved it!!Yes. I prefer to grate it on a cheese grater for russians and mix it in with greens, but adults can eat it in chunks too.
eating them whole will not help they just passed through the gut undigested ( the reason seeds exist). You need a very powerful blenderI have a question, sorry to but in on this thread. I keep hearing that the seeds are a dewormer. But I guess I don't have the right kind of machine to grind them up. I try to put them in my blender and my itsy-bitsy food chopper and it doesn't work. Any suggestions? My tortoises are too small to eat them whole.
