Turtles reared on Hot House Turtles frozen Turtle Food will thrive as the
fish based diet contains necessary calcium and other minerals and vitamins to ensure
turtle shell quality and general well being.
Water snails and garden snails, crushed, and fed shell and all make a nice
delicacy but ensure that the snails have not been poisoned. Turtles also love worms, water
boatman, mosquito larvae and woodlice.
Turtles become more omnivorous as they age and they love puha, lettuce, oxygen weed and
other aquatic plants.
Hatchlings should be fed twice per day and adult turtles once per day. All turtles do best
if they are fed at the same time each day.
You can train you Turtle to accept food in a plastic container or laundry sink and this
will help to keep your turtle tank cleaner. Leave your Turtle in this environment for
about an hour so that defecation takes place in the temporary area rather than in your
tank. Ensure that the water temperature in this area is similar to your turtle tank. You
can also feed Turtles with Hot House Turtles Rubber Tipped Reptile Feeding
Tweezers. These are great when you have more than one Turtle, so you're able to
gauge if each Turtle is getting its own share. I find these brilliant when feeding
frozen food, and saves nips to your fingers especially if you regularly hand feed
your Turtles, and with them being Rubber Tipped, you know you're not going to
injure your Turtles mouth parts or face. (Available in all good Pet Shops.)
In general, turtles will eat the equivalent of twice the size of their head each day.
