Hagen’s Programmable Exo Terra Turtle Feeder Ensures Meals are Delivered on Time

Exo Terra’s Turtle Feeder will not only ensure your pet turtles get fed when you’re not home, but it will also work in the event of a power outage.

MANSFIELD, Mass. Caring for pet turtles has just become a little easier with the Exo Terra Turtle Feeder from the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp.  This programmable, battery-operated device attaches to the side of the terrarium, releasing a predetermined amount of food into the tank at intervals set by the turtle’s owner.  With the ability to program up to four meals a day, the Turtle Feeder ensures the turtle gets a steady diet of essential nutrients plus it helps prevent excess, uneaten food from contaminating the water in the enclosure.  It also provides peace of mind to the turtle owner, knowing his pets are getting fed even in his absence.

The programmable Exo Terra Turtle Feeder is quickly mounted on the edge of the terrarium, allowing easy access to the unit for the owner and to the food for the turtle.  The battery-operated unit can be programmed for up to four feeding sessions a day, helping to prevent overfeeding by allowing pet turtles to stay on a regular feeding schedule.  The completely adjustable Turtle Feeder can be used with various sizes of turtle pellets or sticks and is ideal for feeding a single turtle or several, from the very small to very large.  The clear chamber on the Turtle Feeder allows for monitoring of the food level, allowing the turtle owner to easily see when a refill is necessary.  

Use of the Turtle Feeder also helps to keep the water in the turtle’s tank cleaner, as well, as uneaten food often contaminates the water, making it unhealthy for the tank’s occupants.  By releasing only a set amount of pellets or sticks at each feeding, the Turtle Feeder increases the chances that all of the given food will be eaten at each mealtime, preventing leftover, uneaten food from remaining in the enclosure.

The Turtle Feeder’s extra-large (200 mL/6.7 fl.oz.) food chamber also makes it ideal for vacations, or when the turtle’s owner is going to be away from home for a few days.  Because it is programmable, turtle owners can be certain that their beloved pet turtles will be fed on a regular basis, and need not worry if their pets are getting the right amount of food.  Additionally, power outages are no problem because the Turtle Feeder runs on 2 AA batteries (not included), giving turtle owners even more peace of mind in knowing their pets will still be fed if power to the home is lost.

The Exo Terra Turtle Feeder is ideal for all Exo Terra Turtle Terrariums and most types of aquariums. It comes with a secure mounting bracket that allows it to be easily attached to the rim of the terrarium.  It is for indoor use only.  The Turtle Feeder has an MSRP of $57.99 and is available online and at pet retailers nationwide.  For more information, visit www.exo-terra.com, or contact the Rolf C.
