Russian Tortoises are grass and weed eaters. In the Wintertime I feed them fresh greens from the grocery store and also these Timothy Hay pellets.

I bought this 40 pound bag at Theisen’s, a farm supply store.

I spray water on the pellets to soften them.

They eat a lot of Collard Greens and Kale.

Occasionally sprinkle Calcium powder on the tortoise food. Once a week is good.

I found a good use for these thin limestone pieces. They make a nice dinner plate for the tortoises.

These Redfoots can eat the greens and pellets, but they also get fruits and some protein (cat food).

This 40 pound bag of pellets will last me 10 years. Now I need to get a rabbit.
