This site has been created in order to provide  tortoise keepers with the best possible dietary and captive care information.   With all of the confusing information on the internet, a site that addresses the many aspects of nutritional issues was sorely needed.  This site is a collaborative effort by many people who have worked extensively with tortoises (and turtles) for decades.

We hope that the information provided helps you to give your tortoises what they deserve:  Diets that most closely resemble what they would choose to eat if they were still in the wild.

You will also find references to places you can find the items that are healthiest for the species of tortoises you keep.   We have linked to one site for American tortoise keepers, and are providing links for healthy food items in the UK/EU as well.
