I have a new (one year old) Cherry Head Redfoot Tortoise. Recently bought him a new box of pellets (See picture) from amazon but he refuses to eat them (I usually tried to give him 4 pellets soaked into water and then mashed nicely).

Can someone suggest? Any food brand for this particular brand?

Much appreciated!

Typically torts who haven’t been introduced to Mazuri or other similar products are quite picky with eating it. I usually wet the pellets a bit, crush them, then sprinkle them over whatever plants I give him that day. If you keep up with that for a while, the tort will eventually grow to like it with time.
