- Feed every morning: Offer slightly more food than your tortoise can eat in a day, and allow your pet access to its food for the entire daylight period. Be sure to empty and clean the dish at the end of each day.
- Feed on a plate or other flat surface: We recommend a plate or other clean, flat surface because tortoises have difficulty picking up food from deep bowls.
- Have water available at all times: Your tortoise should have access at all times to a shallow bowl containing fresh, clean water. Also, your tortoise needs to be soaked in shallow warm water: two times weekly for adults; three to four times weekly for juveniles.
- Pellets can be moistened in water or fruit juice before feeding: Some tortoises find that the softer soaked pellets are easier to pick up.
