Cuttlefish

Post by Karon » 27 Aug 2020, 10:10

Hi Nina and Lynne,
I am still regularly using your site and am so grateful for the help and advice you give. It is so nice to have a reliable and friendly site to turn to - thank you.
I have a question please regarding cuttlefish collected from the beach. Would this be suitable for my tortoises and if so would it need to be boiled/soaked to remove salt content?
Thanks
Karon

I would boil it for a couple of hours changing the water a few times to allow the salts to leach out and if it were me I would leave it in the garden for a week to dry and weather. Nina may have other ideas though.
Hope that is helpful Karon and if there is anything else we can do then please do get back to us.
