Hi Stella,

I have lumps of chalk in my enclosure's, I some time's see the torts have a nibble on it but it's mainly the females around the time their laying eggs. :)

Chalk and limestone are both calcium carbonate AFAIK but from slightly different origins. The most important thing when feeding is to know that it is pure and not fortified for some other use such as soil fortification.
