Asked in Box turtle, Lettuce
Can eastern box turtles eat lettuce?
Yes. Box turtles will eat almost any kind of greens. They will also eat broccoli, cabbage, green beans, peas and pea pods and cucumbers. It's easier for them to eat these things if shredded or diced very fine. ^ just be sure not to feed them iceberg lettuce. Iceberg has no nutritional values. it is mostly water. so it will fill them up but not nourish them. In a sense, they will starve. Stick with dark leafy greens but easy on spinach...
