Hi! Young turtles' diet consists mostly of animal matter, like dried shrimp, dried krill, meal worms, earthworms . . . the list goes on and on (mine especially likes chicken (unseasoned). However, if your turtle is an adult, it will mostly eat plant matter, such as tomato, dark leafy greens (no iceberg lettuce), carrot, dandelion greens, and many more. Make sure you also provide good quality turtle food pellets, though these shouldn't make up your turtles entire diet.I bought my turtle yesterday & My new red eared slider does not want to eat anything, ( carrot, tomato.. ) and he spends most of his time in the water.. is it normal for a turtle to sleep in the water considering there's a basking area right next to him ?.
he doesn't swim around much, he just stays at one certain place ..
what type of food do you consider giving him ?. or what should i do to get him to eat ?.
