Turtles enjoy live insects like crickets, mealworms, and earthworms. These offer protein and mental stimulation during hunting.
Offer small amounts of turtle-friendly fruits like strawberries, melon, and figs. These provide vitamins and natural sugars in moderation.
For aquatic turtles, aquatic plants like duckweed, water lettuce, and water hyacinth are a delightful and natural snack.
Turtles adore leafy greens like kale, collard greens, and dandelion greens. These provide essential vitamins and fiber for their diet.
For carnivorous turtles, fresh fish like minnows or small pieces of salmon can be a protein-rich and exciting treat.
High-quality turtle pellets or commercial turtle food can be a convenient and well-balanced part of their diet.
