feeding a turtle

January 31st, 2010, 09:27 AM

I was wondering if anyone who has ever had a red eared slider turtle knows anything special that they like to eat. I feed him his food pellets of course and fish on a regular basis just for being so cute! But I was wondering if there were any other treats that anyone has found that they like. I have tried some fruits, but he doesn't like those, I've tried some veggies and he doesn't like those either. I have heard that they like chicken and steak but I can't remember which one is cooked and which one is raw. I'd also like to know if anyone has had any experience with their turtle liking either one or anything else!

I love turtles:) here is a website that you might find helpful. Scroll down till you find the diet section.

I know this an old post, but they also like bugs and worms. They love crickets.
