Hmm..Percy seems to eat a fair bit of soil when he's outside. Are there different nutriants in there?

Hi, yes torts do sometimes eat the soil and its common for them to eat little white stones!  Just make sure you provide all the supplements that are recommended eg, nutrobal and limestone flour, hopefully he will stop doing this!
