Tortoises are cold-blooded (ectoterm), which means they take on the temperature of the environment. In a cold environment the animal cannot survive. Because they do not use energy to warm themselves, their metabolism is efficient. Our vision
As a result, they require less food than other animals. Because they eat less, it is extra important to provide good, nutritious feed.
Metazoa FitRight Tortoise consists of a mixture of the alfalfa plant, seeds, soy by-products and other crops.
To this are added essential vitamins and minerals to meet the nutritional needs of your tortoise. This product consists only of premium quality raw materials with high absorbability.
In practice it has been found that tortoises grow fast because of this.
Tortoises from cold areas hibernate.
As soon as it starts to get colder, the tortoise prepares itself. After a few weeks, they become inactive and slow down their metabolism. Thus, they burn less energy.
When it gets warmer, they naturally start moving again.
Some tortoises from warm areas take a summer nap to survive during the hottest period when food and water are scarce.
