Product information

Treat your tortoises with healthy food

Tortoises are gourmets and certainly won’t eat everything. However they do enjoy some foods they shouldn’t eat at all. Tomatoes, citrus fruit and flesh are unsuitable.
The composition and enrichment with tasty herbs of JBL PROTERRA HERBIL was developed in cooperation with Dr. Petra Kölle at the University in Munich. Acceptance trials clearly showed that turtles clearly differentiate between different foods offered and to some extent have personal preferences for individual foods from the JBL PROTERRA range. Because even if a food is nutritionally perfectly composed it firstly needs to be accepted by the animal! With JBL PROTERRA HERBIL this has been achieved in a truly outstanding way.

With JBL PROTERRA HERBIL your turtles receive an ideal complete food. Of course you can also collect green plant food and herbs to supplement their basic nutrition in summer. The other JBL PROTERRA foods VEGABIL, FRUCTIL and FLORSIL are an ideal and species-appropriate supplement to JBL PROTERRA HERBIL.

Tortoises like variety. Turtle species for which this food is ideal (examples):
- Red-footed tortoise
- Star tortoise
- Leopard tortoise
- Marginated tortoise
- Hermann's tortoise
- Spur-thighed tortoise
- African spurred tortoise
- Four-clawed tortoise

JBL expeditions often visit turtle habitats, be it in the deserts or, even more frequently, in the wetlands of the tropics. The observations of their way of life and eating habits are incorporated into the development of the JBL foods. This information directly from the wild is extremely valuable, as it would otherwise hardly be available.
The aim should always be to care for the animals in a species-appropriate way and ideally to provide for offspring in order to reduce the removal of species from the wild. Although breeding is not absolutely necessary for some species, as the species relevant to the trade come from offspring or are not endangered, JBL nevertheless considers it desirable to breed pets.

PUSH messages from JBL

What are PUSH messages? As part of the W3C standard, web notifications define an API for end-user notifications that are sent to the user's desktop and/or mobile devices via the browser. Notifications appear on the end devices as they are familiar to the end user from apps installed on the device (e.g. emails). Notifications appear on the end user’s device, just like an app (e.g. for emails) installed on the device.

These notifications enable a website operator to contact its users whenever they have a browser open - it doesn’t matter whether the user is currently visiting the website or not.

To be able to send web push notifications, all you need is a website with a web push code installed. This allows brands without apps to take advantage of many of the benefits of push notifications (personalised real-time communications at just the right moment).

Web notifications are part of the W3C standard and define an API for end user notifications. A notification makes it possible to inform the user about an event, such as a new blog post, outside the context of a website.

JBL GmbH & Co. KG provides this service free of charge, and it is easy to activate or deactivate.
