Torts eating tufa rock
Posted: 27/07/2012 by midorigoi.1

Hi all came out today to find my leopard torts eating tufa rock from a fish tank ?
They've got cuttlefish in there but never touch it but they seem to have been going mad on this bit of rock!
Do you thing it will harm them ?
Thanks Carl

Hi Carl
Tufa rock is Lime stone which is calcium, so they are trying toget extra.
Put your cuttlefish out in the garden to weather, as torts don't like nice fresh white and clean cuttle, probably the smell of fish either, and you will find that they will get theri extra supplement of calcium from these

Thanks jane
I've spent a fortune on cuttlefish and wondered why they've never bothered with it !
