Man, I think that is the great debate among many tort keepers LOL!!! I do use mazuri, but pretty sparingly. Maybe every third or fourth feeding at most, and its great to have around when the fresh greens run out and you dont have time to get to the store, etc. I have a friend of mine who feeds his sulcatas, redfoots, stars, and leopard tort mazuri on a fairly consistent basis and all his torts are doing well. Zoos use the stuff. I think moderation is the key and a varied diet and natural sun go a long way. Some keepers will tell you mazuri is primarily all they feed, and some will tell you not to feed at all. I look at it as a food alternative to add to the mix and variety. Its also great to help put weight on after winter, or with newly acquired animals.
