Hi to all,
I have a 2.5-3 year old femle sulcata.
she Weighes around 2 kilograms and she's 8.5 inches in length.
i recently started feeding her "zoomed Natural Grassland Tortoise Food".
She eats it with great voracity.it seems to me that she will eat whatever amount of food i will offer her.
I am concerned of over feeding her and would like to know how many grams of it she needs daily.
thanks in advance.
Guy

Sulcatas can be real pigs. They spend a lot of time grazing. I wouldn't worry about her getting fat.

Yes, it is all about what you feed her that matters. A healthy appetite is a good sign.

I've always held by the rule of letting them pig out for a good 15 minutes or so. After that meal time is over.
