Agrobs Testudo Herbs
The diet of wild turtles depends on the natural conditions of the vegetation.
In their native habitat, the actual growing season is limited to a short time, this is replaced by drought and heat from midsummer to autumn.
In spring, the crude fibre content in the plants is low and the protein content is high.
Herbs and grasses “age” during summer.
Thus, the crude fibre content rises in mid-summer, while the protein content then drops sharply.
Thanks to the well-developed cecum, they can get enough nutrients from grasses and herbs.
Agricultural pastures contain too many nutrients for tortoises. This can lead to a variety of diseases.
The food for tortoises in their natural habitat is similar to the rough pastures in the foothills of the Alps.
With natural, herb-rich food and proper care, turtles reach an old age.
Testudo Herbs is therefore a valuable staple of the daily feed ration. The combination of fresh meadow plants, with more than 60 different types of grass and herbs, stands for a rich and balanced food supply for the animal.
