Five ounces for 12.95 would be $25.90 for 10 ounces.

Tortoisesupply.com offers one that has more variety in it, and you get 16 ounces for $24.95. Much better price. You pay $1 less, but get 6 more ounces. I've used the one from torotisesupply for years and my tortoises love it.

Plus @TylerStewart, owner of tortoisesupply.com is a site sponsor, and he and his lovely wife are great people. I'd rather give them the business, save some money, get more product, and get a better product.

The Tyler herbal hay is a great product from a trusted source. The only thing I will say about it is that 16 ounces is a LOT for one redfoot tortoise. If any tortoise will power through it, it’s probably a redfoot but if you are overloaded with good foods (looks like you are growing seeds in a mild California climate and you’ve got access to some weeds), you may not need any dry supplement, whether it’s one ounce or six. I ended up making an incredible fragrant bath soak out of my Tyler hay, when I was new and buying everything; my California tortoise wasn’t interested. I could have found a way to sneak it in but I came to see she really didn’t need it. Maybe you could hold off a little on this purchase? It’s more common as a mix in for people who can’t get a wide variety or for winter when food variety drops.

Again, no problem with the product, just didn’t need it in the long run.

I appreciate the suggestion and info. I do have quite a lot of fresh weeds and flowers for my tortoise at the moment, and I can reason with what you said about not needing the dry supplement (at least in the summer). I also agree that it would be wise to hold off on the blind purchases, and wait until the food is needed.
Thank you all again!
