    I've been feeding my tortoises pellets from the breeder I bought them from but they don't like them anymore. Does anyone else use pellets as part of their diet and if so what do you use or from where do you get them?

    I should also point out that their main diet is greens with the occasional fruit and the occasional animal protein.

    I'll look into that one. Thanks. My torts eat primarily greens, fruit, mushrooms and some pellets but the kind I've been giving them to won't eat anymore. One of my torts won't eat veggies anymore no matter what I give him so I'm in search of new food options to switch too.
