I've been a strong advocate of using Mazuri for roughly 12 years now.

These are my Stars which were raised on Mazuri since 2 inches scl. Mazuri has been a staple for the last 5 years. The Stars are about 8 years old and are just starting to breed this year. The female (large one) is about 6 inches scl.


As to accelerated growth or 'too much' protein being the cause of pyramiding... total nonsense.

This is Al and cousin (Al's the big tortoise). Al is 12 years old and the cousin is about 5 years old.


Bottom line... I think this stuff is one of the best developments in tortoise husbandry in the history of the hobby so far.

>>Hello everyone, I am a new tortoise keeper in search of the best diet for star tortoises, I currently have 2 Sri lankans and 4 Indians, they love mixed greens, and they devour mazuri when it is offered to them, my question is how much mazuri is to much,
