How Long Can a Turtle Live without Food?

Answer

Turtles should be fed two to three times per week, but they can survive without food for longer periods of time. A new pet turtle may not eat for up to a week while it is getting used to the new surroundings. A turtle that is allowed to go into hibernation may not eat for up to five months; if a turtle is kept in a constant warm environment it will not hibernate therefore it will need to be fed regularly
