Again.. the point of this post was to discuss pyramiding and the tortoise species that are prone to it, such as sulcatas, red foots, and leopard tortoises. This information, I feel, does not apply to asian mountain tortoises, box turtles, yellow foots, or other known omnivore species with little to no reports of pyramiding.

Note this is just a post. I have no intention of substantiating the information or publishing it. Thats for the vets and zoologists and such..

Please, I ask everyone, just put a water bowl with fresh water in your tortoises enclosure and if you have one of the three known pyramiding prone species (sulcatas, red foots, leopards) you should avoid excessive proteins (especially cat food!) and sugars.

sorry if I ruined the "fun"
