hey all,

New to the forum, just wondering if someone could point me in the direction of a full list of all the food I can feed my Sulcata.

I want to give the little guy the beat range of diet possible in my area.
I’m sorry if this question has already been asked, like I said I’m new to the site.

Big thank you for any help.

Nate

Do we need to shave the thorns off the cactus pear?

No. I've been feeding them out with the "spineless" spines intact for several years now. In some enclosure I literally slice the pads off with a knife and let them drop to the ground to be eaten, this would include any fruits or flowers attached to the cut pad.
