    Alright Mazuri gurus... where's the best place to buy Mazuri?

    Is it something that loses it's potency over time and/or has issues being in the heat during shipping? Or should I just be looking for the best deal price-wise?

    Thanks!

    For smaller amounts, Spikethebest is the way to go. If you're looking for a 25lb bag, then I'd get the feed store to order it.

    If you want to buy a 20lb bag, and if your feed store (cattle/horse) sells Purina products, then he can order it for you. Its called:

    Mazuri Tortoise Diet

    Most feed stores charge right around $20 for the bag.

    I have a feed store locally that just special orders my 25 pound bags. It costs me $27.99 total a bag. I just called around to different feed stores. One I contacted said they couldn't because they'd have to order a pallet, so i just kept calling and I have one here that is happy to order one or more bags that I need. Some feed stores keep it on stock too, as it depends on how much they sell.

    I had never heard of these "red tortoise sticks" until now. The website you referenced above (see Tortoise Sticks) makes it sounds like they are a great new competitor to Mazuri Tortoise Diet. Are tortoise sticks really a good product?

    I guess it depends on how many tortoise's you have and how often you plan on feeding it. I get the 25 pound bag from my local feed store because I feed it every day and its cheaper for me, about $26 for the 25 pound bag. We keep ours in a large container that is sold to keep charcoal fresh but it works great for Mazuri...

    Go to your local Tack'n'Feed. If they don't have it in stock...they'll order it and have it for you in less than a week...about $20 - $25 a bag.
