Hello, I haven't got a tortoise yet, but doing lots of research before getting one. I decided I want to use cuttlefish Bone for calcium, but can't find much on vitamin D. I was wondering what people use to give there tortoise vitamin D, please?
Cheers

Feed them a varied diet that is correct for the species, and use a good UVB bulb over them set to the correct height and checked regularly with a UV meter. Sunshine works too when the weather and climate allow.
