    Feed your Red-foot Tortoise a mixture of high calcium greens, fruits, vegetables, and flowers and a small amount of animal protein. Good greens include  collard, mustard, dandelion, endive, watercress, romaine, kale, and escarole. Spinach should not be over fed because it contains oxalates that bind dietary calcium, making it unavailable. Good fruits and vegetables to offer are pumpkin, winter squash, grated carrots, crook-neck squash, zucchini, papaya, mango, kiwi, melon, cantaloupe, frozen mixed vegetables (thawed), and prickly pear fruits. High quality canned dog food and pinky mice should be offered every other feeding. Also sprinkle the food every seven to ten days with Reptical Calcium supplement.
