I don't need uvb he gets natural sunlight everyday also this grass is one of his favorite things.I have che in case that i need it for the "winter" around January and February would be like 60 at night time for like a week or so and yep so far that's all.
Anyways i did come back to this forum because i do have a big concern about mazuri wich i don't need because i do provide a good variety and natural home-grown food .but since everyone feeds mazuri and the zoos do to i said why not
You don’t only need tort pellets, you can buy Some baby arugula, or cut up some collard greens and carrots, and every month or so, you can give him so fruit like melon or raspberrie.I tried ls he didn't liked it at all .and then i buy the other one i decided to get the one on amazon so i don't have to buy the 25lbs one in case that he didn't liked it .well he loves it...... but ...... when i was about to buy the one from mazuri.com le 25lbs i was reading that that formula is not for sulcatas tortoise and i was in shock because even at the reviews people feed that to their sulcatas and i do believe that the amazon one is the same formula "5m21" which is not meant for sulcatas is for "tropical and omnivores tortoise " and the actual sulcata food is "mazuri Cu" which is for dry land herbivores tortoise so yeah im tripping over this and i need some" professional " point of view
mazuri/tortoise pellets can actually be fed a few times a week for extra fiber. carrots and fruit are too sweet and might cause parasite blooms.You don’t only need tort pellets, you can buy Some baby arugula, or cut up some collard greens and carrots, and every month or so, you can give him so fruit like melon or raspberrie.
Please read again i said that i don't need it and i have a variety of food for him wich not included carrots and fruitsYou don’t only need tort pellets, you can buy Some baby arugula, or cut up some collard greens and carrots, and every month or so, you can give him so fruit like melon or raspberrie.
The original 5M21 is what you want. It does have some sugar and the ingredient list is not all that impressive. However, almost nobody can get their tortoises to eat the other LS mazuri (it’s like trying to make my kids eat broccoli). The 5M21 has a proven track record and is fine as a small part of a varied diet.Please read again i said that i don't need it and i have a variety of food for him wich not included carrots and fruits
his main food is grass , and hay sides hibiscus ,spineless opuntina cactus, dandelion,romaine lettuce. Sometimes a little bit of banana leaves and the mazuri. But that was not my question my question was if that mazuri food is the right one for sulcatas since the description clearly says that is for tropical and omnivores tortoise.
What a ridiculous post. I don’t think anyone on this forum would sell to you.Hello guys . Is me again. After a while thinking that you all were a bunch of as**oles i went to a Facebook group and most of them doesn't know sh*t about tortoise. definitely "partially" I recognized that all the tips and the "guide" is almost right and i say almost because i live in Miami FL and im not buying a $700 enclosure not even for winter . My humidity is 80% naturally. And my baby tortoise Tony lives outside. He went from 46G to 74G at the moment ,day 28 i have to weigh him again. And with a few changes and a good diet i was able to correct his pyramid .peace out and i love the forum . Tom maybe in a future if you consider that im doing right i will love to buy some Sudan from you.if you guys wanna follow him on ig and see the progress @tonymontanatortoiseoffical.
Sulcatas should never have fruit. And if this person can provide grass and other "natural" foods, there is no reason buy grocery store greens that are not as good for them.You don’t only need tort pellets, you can buy Some baby arugula, or cut up some collard greens and carrots, and every month or so, you can give him so fruit like melon or raspberrie.
Sulcatas ARE tropical. They come from the tropics. Between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Tropic of Cancer.Oh, I don’t think sulcatas would be tropical, because they stand out too well, so not likely, and if your tort likes the pellets, then that is okay even though It is for other tortoises. And maybe check the ingredients fo the mazuri and see if it is okay for your tort
My issue is that you don't understand what does and doesn't apply to you, and you refuse to listen to people that do. I cannot, in good conscience, sell you a baby tortoise if you intend to house it the way you are housing this one. I won't sell to anyone who intends to house a baby that way, because I know that its not good for them. I think if you built a proper temperature controlled night enclosure, a larger juvenile that is ready to live outside full time would do well with you. I'd be fine sending you a large juvenile or adult after you'd constructed and set up the correct type of night shelter.I do listen 100% of the "professional advice " but i take what applies to me .
