I just got a turtle and I named him, Turk. I love him already but I am not really sure on what to feed him exactly. I started by giving him water (of course), a slice of an apple, lettuce, and a couple of leaves from an orange tree from my backyard. I don't know if he has eaten well I haven't noticed him eating.
I would really appreciate someone telling me what to do, either in a hub (I made a request) or on this forum. It would mean so much to me because I really don't want Turk to die. I will have to go and get a Turk Sr. And I really like the Turk I have. (he tickles my neck) HAHA.
lettuce is fine don't give him any more leaves from trees. if you have a pet store near by get him some turtle food get super turtle if they have it its better for him and it won't fog up the tank and blood worms. you can also try fish but if you want fish to keep then don't feed him fish if you want to know more it would be quicker to talk so if u want u can give me a call 614-529-9244 ask for jon call around 8:00 or 9:00 ill be home i have five turtels one for three years and i got all of them when they were the size of a half dollar and the and i also got two budbekkys but im trying to find some one who wants to by them any way i hope this helps u by the way what kind of turtle is turk ttul
I saw the request but you didn't give enough information for me to help you with the exact diet or care, so I'm glad you posted this thread.
It will depend on the species as to what you'll feed him. Is it a turtle or a tortoise? Generally, turtles need commercial turtle pellets, whereas tortoises will need fresh veggies.
Some turtles will even eat small guppies. But the exact diet and care will depend on the turtle/tortoise species. Most turtles are actually semi-aquatic, so you'll need to provide more than a little water for him than just enough to drink. If you have a semi-aquatic turtle, the apple and lettuce really won't mean much for his diet.
If you have a wild caught turtle, then you should release it whereever you picked it up. You shouldn't keep wild animals as pets. In most states, it's actually illegal to do so. If you want a pet turtle go to a breeder or even the pet store.
Haha. No I did not pick him up on the side of the road. I payed $90 dollars for him and I still have the Receipt. It says he is a Russian Tortoise. But that is all it says. Does that help you?
There ya go it's done
Nice Turtle Hub btw and Turtles are cute, I just have to say it.
Tater2tot, I don't know if you'll check the hub again, but I replied to your comment about the apples and diet.
i just have my turtle that my brother bought me a week ago..well his name is mao2x and i don't know but i don't like having a pet turtle on the second thought, it's kinda ok at the same time because it seems like doing a big mess in your room lol
Oh man I have a wild turtle his name is Bubba. A friend found him and gave him to me. I have set up a cage for him and everything. I went online and figured out what kind of turtle he is and all. He is a mud turtle and I just go to the pet store and buy him fresh fish to eat. He gobbles them down well it does take him some time to catch them but within 2 - 3 days he has caught them all. I usually buy him a dozen or so.
I guess I will have to find somewhere that sells them, but I kinda have gotten attached to him and I dont really want to let him go.
Actually, lettuce is not good food for turtles or tortoises. It has no nutritional value at all for them. Apples, cucumber, and turtle food pellets are the best. Bananas are ok, as long as you don't give them too many (diarrhea if they have too many). I had a box turtle for six years.
