Commercial Tortoise Diet

Hi Guys,
I was just wondering if there are any suppliers of a pre mixed, pelleted form of tortoise diet in SA?
If you know of any, please let me know.

Since tortoises get a lot of their water intake fromt he food they eat it would be inadvisable to feed them dried, pelleted food. Feed them what they are supposed to eat.

Thanks Sico, I am aware of their dietary requirements.

I was looking more for something like the Mazuri pellets that the guys in the states use, to add as a supplement to their current diet.
