Opuntias for Tortoise and Iguana Food

Opuntias (prickly pears) are high in calcium, vitamin C and fibre and are enjoyed by many species of tortoise and iguana. All of our opuntias are pesticide free and each order comes with a free information sheet detailing cultivation and feeding tips, which is also reproduced online here for convenience.
