red eared slider turtle do not eat sharks. despite there ability to practically devour anything the sharks are to big to attempt to attack it. hence turtles do not try to attack them and red eared slider turtles don't eat them. :)

No, however, red-eared slider turtles tend to be very open to any new type of food expect onions

Yes red eared slider turtles can grow to be up to 11", but are usually only about 1" when born. They are omnivores and eat mainly veggies.

These turtles eat just about anything they can get their mouths around. But they shouldn't eat goldfish because they are not good for the turtles.

Yes, fish are the Red Eared Slider turtles natural prey. Your turtle will enjoy chasing around the fish and eating them as well.

no fish can't live with turtles because the turtles will eat the fish.

Raccoons, opossums and coyotes are among predators of the red eared slider turtle. Many other predators, including snapper turtles and some birds would eat hatchlings as well.

no,slider turtles have fixed tongues but no saliva for that reason they must eat inside water

They eat pellets (thats the best), vegetables (lettuce,cucumber etc.) and fruits.

Red-eared slider turtles will eat fish such as minnows, goldfish, and guppies. Besides fish, they also eat bugs, snails, tadpoles and even worms.

Feed your red-eared slider regularly. Turtles require different amounts of food depending on their size. If you are unsure how much food to feed your turtle, consult a veterinarian. Feed your red-eared slider a high-protein commercial turtle kibble, available at your local pet store. To supplement this food, give your red-eared slider chopped vegetables such as zucchini, kale, dandelions, squash, endive leaves and collard greens.

Yes, yellow belly slider turtles can eat fish!

Yes, they are carnivores and will eat any meat they can get.

it will if in a pond with wish

Yes they can and also earthworms

A red eared slider will eat strawberries. My red eared slider eat strawberries once a week and maybe half of one. Don't give it to them every day because they are very low in protein but your turtle will love them! i know that the pellets have the most protein and vitamins so you should check that out!

I would say no. They may be turtles with small brains but they are smart, I can tell, and even if their buddy died I doubt they'd eat him. Once, after a few days of not feeding my turtles since I was forced to make them eat cucumber slices to cure my smaller one, the bigger turtle took a snap at the other one's head, but I am unsure if this is out of hunger or out of annoyance. But still, I think they are not cannibals.

When you feed a red eared slider, the food should be in the water.
