What Do I Feed My Turtle?


Your pet turtle requires a healthy, balanced, turtle diet which should be comprised of feeder fish, turtle sticks and constant supply of fresh water. One sure sign of poor nutrition is presence of cloudy skin patches, or milky eyes.

There are different types of turtles and whatever a turtle feeds on depends on its breed and its natural habitat. e.g. River Cooters eat a diet primarily composed of plants only, while Map Turtles prefer animal matter; American Box Turtles are omnivores who eat a little bit of everything; The Malayan Box Turtle should eat plenty of plants with just a little bit of animal matter, but the Chinese 3-Striped Box Turtle eats 'meats' almost exclusively. Its always good to determine which type of turtle is your pet and you can feed accordingly.
What you feed your turtle depends on the type of turtles you have. Some eat meat some eat vegetables. The best thing to do is to buy turtle food at the pet store. Or you can read up on the type of turtle you have to know what he eats in the wile, and you can supplement his turtle food with that.
