Grassland Tortoise Food

Correct High Fiber, Low Protein Diet

22% Fiber | 8.5% Protein | 1.4% Fat

  • Carefully formulated by Ph.D. nutritionists to meet the unique nutritional needs of Grassland Tortoise species.
  • High fiber and low protein levels allow for normal growth and proper shell development (pyramiding is NOT normal and likely caused in part by a high protein/low fiber diet).
  • Chopped Timothy, Miscanthus, and Alfalfa grasses provide long-stem fiber, a very important part of their natural diet
  • Contains Dandelion Greens, Yucca, and other plants that tortoises love! 
  • No artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives added. 

Perfect for all grassland tortoise species, including: 

  •     Russian Tortoise (Agrionemys horsfieldii)
  •     African Spurred/Sulcata Tortoise (Geochelone sulcata) 
  •     Leopard Tortoise (Geochelone pardalis)
  •     Pancake Tortoise (Malacochersus tornieri)
  •     Greek/Mediterranean Spur Thigh Tortoise (Testudo graeca)
  •     Hermann’s Tortoise (Testudo hermanni)
  •     Desert Tortoise and related species (Gopherus spp.)

Additional Information


“I love your new Grassland Tortoise Food. Zoo Med really did its research on this product. The only thing that can beat the natural ingredients and fiber in your product would be moving my family and tortoise herd back to the tortoises natural habitat! I cant say enough about it and I really want everyone with a tortoise to know about it.”
– John Bailey (TSA member & noted tortoise breeder)
