The diet of a tortoise in the wild is always dependent on its natural vegetation conditions. In its original habitat, the actual growing season is usually quite short, followed by drought and heat from midsummer through autumn. In spring, the plants' crude fibre content is relatively low and their protein content is high. The herbs and grasses "age" as the summer progresses, with crude fibre content increasing at the peak of summer and protein content dropping off sharply.

The needs of the organism call for a feed composition that is adapted to the seasonal cycle.

Baby tortoises have dietary needs that are similar to adults. They need herbs and grasses from biodiverse yet lean meadows. Practice restraint in feeding them, even if this diet seems meagre by human standards. This will ensure the steady, slow growth necessary for young turtles and will prevent later health issues.

Testudo Baby is an extra-fine feed adapted to the dietary needs of young tortoises and made up of leaves and seeds rich in vital substances from biodiverse, lean meadows in the Alpine foothills in Bavaria. The fine components and extra-short fibre lengths provide babies and young tortoises weighing up to 200g with adequate roughage and vital substances.

  • provides nutrition in line with the natural habitats of young tortoises

  • enhances diet with nutrients and vital substances
  • ensures an optimum supply of crude fibre
