Today in the market i came across a Very renowned Pet Shop in ahmedabad..
I inquired about tortoise food and the incharge handed me this..
Its basically a eatable for turtle and reptiles but he said that even tortoise can have them without any problem..
M uploading couple of photos regarding the food and its ingredients..
Do lemme know what should I do..
Should i give him this...??
don't even bring that anywhere close to coco.......it contains ANIMAL flesh,,shrimp, fish meal etc........ your tortoise has never ever tasted fish in such arid areas and neither have his ancestors tasted anything like FISH or SHRIMP....where can you find fish/shrimp in the forests of gujarat or atleast the places where these tortoise reside??.....tortoises do eat carrion(animal meat) in the wild but we should not try this in captivity......... and that food is for turtles....... there is a HUGE difference between a turtle and tortoise....... try explaining that to the owner of that pet store........ and ask him one question ....!!! who has given him the permit of owning a pet shop when he knows nothing and gives wrong suggestions to costumer....... INDIAN STAR TORTOISE + FISH/SHRIMP =DEAD TORTOISE/DISASTER....... so i suggest you return it back if you have already bought it..... your tort will be as good as he will ever be on green veggies and flowers.......just be patient with him/her..... i hope you understand and don't feed that to coco......
