Hi all, I really need some advice with the feeding of my two leopards,its hard to get the fresh grass and weeds at this time of year so I recently bought some of the dry pelleted food,they love this so I add the neautrabal to this with a little water and they eat it all.I used to feed the bags of fresh salad greens but someone says lettuce is bad for leopards.Please someone help.:o

I'm afraid to say pellets are far worse than lettuce.

You can buy different dried grasses for the leopards and sulcatas etc. like alfafa although this is not an ideal grass as it is high in something or other (cant remember off hand) but you can buy bales of grasses they can eat. i'm sure somebody will add to this :)

do NOT feed pelleted food. Your tortoise is not a hamster
