THE CARE WE TAKE

HABITAT
All stock is kept in species specific habitats, enclosures, pens and holding tanks. There is no cross contamination of water or species. New arrivals are kept separate from current stock

DIET & SET UPS
All of our turtles and tortoises are fed correct diets specific to the species. Due to a great deal of research and testing at our facility in 2009, from 2010 we have been feeding all of our turtles and tortoises with Zoo Med Laboratories products. Zoo Med is the number one reptile product manufacturer in the world.



In addition, we utilize Zoo Med Lighting and other reptile related products. Our testing started with the Zoo Med Tortoise Foods, followed by Zoo Med Aquatic Turtle Food and then the canned products. To our amazement, every time we used Zoo Med products, our animals voraciously ate the Zoo Med Diets. Zoo Med have spent many years perfecting these products and the results are now proof that we have an excellent feeding source. Important key words to observe are "NATURAL" and "no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors". In 2011 we started using Zoo Meds "Reptibators" with great success. Our hatch rate has increased and we are very pleased!

Our hatchling turtles are being fed Zoo Med Aquatic Turtle Food Hatchling Formula and Zoo Med ReptiSticks from their first feedings. Adult turtles are given Zoo Med Aquatic Turtle Food. In addition we feed them krill, shrimp, fish plus Zoo Med Aquatic Turtle Banquet Blocks for calcium supplement.

Our Tortoises are fed Zoo Med Grassland Food or Zoo Med Forest Tortoise Food depending on species as well as fruits, vegetables, spineless cactus, grasses, alfalfa plus Zoo Med Tortoise Banquet Blocks.

Box Turtles are fed a mixture of fruits, veggies, Zoo Med Box Turtle Food and a mix of Zoo Med canned products such as Can O' pillars, Can O' superworms etc. A few other new products we are using are Zoo Med lighting including ReptiSun 5.0 and ReptiSun 10.0, Zoo Med Ceramic Heaters. Zoo Med Clamp Lamps and Zoo Med Shredded Aspen.
