Can My Turtle Eat This?

    I have a small (baby) box turtle (I believe).
    I bought nature zone's total bites for feeder insects.
    I was just wondering if she could eat it.
    I doubt she will, I'm not trying to make her, it will just be in there for the "roly-polies"/ red earthworms
    I would just rather know if it's safe for her to eat before putting it in there
    Here's Echo (box turtle?)

    I don't know anything about turtles, but what's always a good rule is to not feed anything that's not made for the certain animal, unless you have found that they can eat it.

    I know, which is why I'm asking
    I want to put it in there to feed the "bugs" inside.
    I can't get her to eat anything that isn't moving, but I want to be sure before putting it in there.
    It says something about feeding it to reptiles on the side of the jar, but it's covered up by a barcode

    She is so squee looking! :joyful: :happy: Sorry, I just love turtles/tortoises! I haven't had any so I can't give you any advice. Maybe there is some sort of turtle/tortoise site that's like Fishlore that can help.

    She's adorable. There is no reason she can't eat it. (I don't know if she will, but she can) It's 90% moisture. hahaha WATER. It does have spirulina in it. That's a product people can eat. I think that is where the 3% protein comes from. It is normally fed to feeder bugs and insects but turtles will eat algae. As long as you have it, give it a try.

    Ok, thank you
    And she's only slightly bigger than a (U.S.) quarter! So tiny
