$24.99 – $49.99
Sample pack size is one ounce each of all five weeds, OR 4 oz each of Nettle, Dandelion, & Plantain, 12 ounces total – you can add two more 4 ounce weeds, Marshmallow and Echinacea, for 20 ounces total (best value).
All tortoises will eat eat dry weedy leaves when mixed in with fresh greens, eventually eating just dry when fresh foods are not readily available. These dry weeds are more nutrient dense and higher in fiber than lettuces that you might mix them with.
Bagged separately so you can alter the weeds from one feeding to the next to habituate your tortoise to variety. You might also see one is favored over another. One & half pound bags are available for each type. The regular 'weeds' variety pack and the optional two more weeds are all four ounce portions. The 'sample' size is one ounce each of all five weeds, dandelion, plantain, nettle, marshmallow and echinacea. These are suitable for tortoises larger than about 50 grams or about 2 ounces.
*Sourced from USDA certified organic producers. My re-packing is done in a non-certified facility, so the term 'organic' may not appear on the primary label. I have not altered the integrity of these foods when re-packaged.
