FED UP WITH HAVING TO FEED YOUR PET TORTOISE JUNK?
Did you know that almost all commercial Tortoise foods are made from food waste such as almond nut shells or soya husk? Did you know that many of these prepared diets that smell so strongly of fruits or flowers do so because of potent artificial attractants?
Did you know that many of these foods are totally unnatural when compared with the wild diets of these incredible animals? In many cases they are little more than a baked, extruded chemical mass of artificial colors, flavors, scents, and preservatives? A chemical soup soaked into waste fibers and with very little actual ‘food’.
EarthPro-Optimised52 is a brand new, vet checked, all-natural way of feeding tortoises, developed to replicate wild feeding by only using natural ingredients. We use no non-natural fillers such as seed husks, nut shells, Maize, soya and flours which are all too common in prepared Tortoise diets.
Tortoises have developed over vast time to be opportunistic feeders that are highly herbivorous. They are an exploring species that will graze as opportunity arises within seasonality. The wild diet of the Mediterranean species consists mainly of leafy vegetation, grasses, roots, tubers, and seasonal flowers. Fruits are taken but rarely and as a seasonal supplier.
A wild diet of this type is very high in fibre, low in protein, sodium and fats. Natural geophagy is also a vital supplier of essential minerals and vitamins, mostly from the B group.
Grass and botanical Mix, average 52 species plus the Following; Timothy Hay, Dandelion Leaves, Nettle, Plantain, Strawberry Leaves, Blackberry Leaves, Raspberry Leaves, Red Clover, Rose Flowers, Marigold Flowers, Revitalise D3, Bee Pollen, Probiotics, Amino Acid Complex, Carotenoid Powder, FlowerBoost with Dandelion leaves at 2.5g per 100g
Optimised52 contains EarthPro-RevitaliseD3 in a format specifically designed for tortoises kept with optimal UV lighting and balanced diet.

How We Ship
*video coming soon*
Safe Shipping Weather
We will only ship to your home or work when weather in route is 35-90 degrees
Fahrenheit. This temperature range is extended to 25-95 degrees Fahrenheit upon
arrival if you opt to have your live animals held for pickup at a main FedEx Shipping Center. Animals must be picked up within 4 hours of arrival for live arrival guarantee to apply.
Orders generally arrive by 12:00 PM
Typically the delivery time is before 12:00 PM (your local time) in most metro areas, but some remote areas may not be guaranteed to arrive until "end of day", which is usually late afternoon or early evening at the latest (4:30PM).
FedEx Drivers WILL NOT wait for you to come to the door.
Generally speaking, FedEx will quickly knock or ring the doorbell, and leave your
package near your front door. While this sometimes seems crazy to people who are new to having reptiles shipped to them, but this is industry standard. We purposely do not require signature, as we do not want to risk having reptiles go back on a hot (or cold) truck for the rest of the day, in the event you don't make it to the door in time. This is for the safety of the reptiles. Although we don't require a signature for delivery, we can still obtain GPS delivery coordinates and other information when needed, in order to determine where a package was left and verify delivery.
Is there an issue with your order? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Any issues with your order must be reported within 4 hours of delivery. Animals that are Dead on Arrival (DOA) must be reported within 1 hour of delivery. Photo evidence will be required for all claims. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us first (we are open 7 days a week). Failure to notify us via email within timeframe listed above will void all guarantees.
Please email (email@example.com) to summit an order issue ticket. A photo of the contents of the shipment must be sent to the email above within the given amount of time after arrival or all guarantees are null and void.
