Eastern Snake-necked Turtle – nutrition and water
Turtles must be provided with clean, conditioned drinking and swimming water at all times.
Eastern Snake-necked Turtles are carnivorous and can be fed a variety of meat/fish/insect products to achieve a high level of health. A diet consisting of a range of unprocessed, protein rich natural foods is preferable to a diet consisting solely of pre-prepared turtle blocks or pellets.
Turtles can be fed a mix of:
- Bait prawns
- White bait
- Turtle mix
- Turtle pellets.
Adult turtles should be offered a meal no more than 3 times a week and young turtles can be offered a meal 4-5 times per week.
