In the wild, land tortoises consume a large variety of different foods. Trying to mimic this type of diet with grocery produce is difficult and risky. A balanced diet is key to warding off diseases such as Metabolic Bone Disease, bladder stones, renal disease and the condition referred to as pyramiding. Tortoise MonsterDietTM utilizes natural grains and ingredients such as carrot, dandelion, celery, beet, parsley, lettuce and watercress to provide the nutrients required for long-term maintenance.
