A red eared slider can go without food for atleast 7 days, ( That's a whole week!) I had to do the same thing leaving my read eared slider home, but if you put in some food before you leave and a Turtle Bone (TM) He will be fine, try looking the turtle bone on petsmart.com
they are in the omnivores section :)
No, however, red-eared slider turtles tend to be very open to any new type of food expect onions
no,slider turtles have fixed tongues but no saliva for that reason they must eat inside water
idk about land turtles but my red eared slider eats pellets,mealworms,crickets,fish and plants(vegetables)
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.
Well, in my experience my two male red- eared sliders get along pretty well. Sometimes they will fight for food.
It needs calcium in it's food. That disease could kill your turtle.
red eared slider turtles will eat alot of things like:guppies,snails,shrimp,somtimes crab or hermit crab,tetra fish(cloud white or glo lite),minnows,and somtimes even other turtles.
feed raw chicken or meat due to the risk of bacterial contamination. Also See. How Much Should I Feed My Red Eared Slider? How Should I Give My Red Eared Slider Its Food?
When you feed a red eared slider, the food should be in the water.
Young baby turtles can eat many different ,but something easy is wiggle tails or baby mosquitos
You can purchase a good quality turtle food and/or leafy greens. You can allow the greens to float in the water. The turtles will bite off of it.
Red ear slider turtles will eat goldfish. This is a natural food source for the turtles.
You must feed it gourmet turtle food
You should feed them aquatic turtle food, such as Reptomin Floating Food Sticks.
No - the turtle will always view them as food !
Because he/she is depressed. Or he/she doesnt like the food.
Daily is fine, or even every other day. Younger turtles should be fed more often than older ones. they can go a couple days without food and be fine, since they don't need all that energy to make body heat.
A red eared slider can eat cucumber slices, thin carrot slices, small feeder fish, dried shrimp, and turtle food pellets. The cucs and the carrots and the food pellets are daily, and the shrimp and the fish are like treats. :)
you should feed them a little a pinch or two of food.
Turtle food from the pet store, garden slugs or bugs.
Turtle pellets, feeder fish, fruits, etc.
Red-eared turtles hibernate in the winter. It is best to leave them alone, so they can feel "natural."
You can feed them a green pellety food, and feeder fish are good for them too, that is all i know im not sure if they can eat fruits and veggies though, my sister just feeds them the pellets and fish
Yes. Most freshwater aquatic turtles prefer to feed from the surface of the water. The standard (and best) turtle food is Reptomin Floating Food Sticks, which come in a tall green can with a yellow lid. As advertised, these food sticks float on the surface.
