reddia.gif (1120 bytes) Feeding Guidelines reddia.gif (1120 bytes)
Important: Follow the conversion method.

  • Feed every morning. Offer slightly more food than your box turtle can eat in a day, and allow your pet access to its food for the entire daylight period. Be sure to empty and clean the dish at the end of each day.

  • Feed on a plate or other flat surface: We recommend a plate or other clean, flat surface because turtles have difficulty picking up food from deep bowls.

  • Have water available at all times: Your box turtle should have access at all times to a shallow bowl containing fresh, clean water. Also, box turtles need to be soaked in shallow warm water at least once weekly.

  • Pellets can be moistened in water or fruit juice before feeding: Some box turtles find that the softer soaked pellets are easier to pick up.

These quantities serve as initial estimates, since the amount of food eaten by your box turtle will depend on its size, condition, health, and cage temperature.

A healthy box turtle is alert and aware of its surroundings. Its eyes are bright and its nose is dry. It will eat and drink readily, and enjoy being soaked in warm water. Box turtle stools are dark and formed. The urine may be clear in part. White chalky deposits in urine are termed urates and are normal.

Food intakes will be less than optimal when animals are cold, sick or stressed. Low food intake is unhealthy for your box turtle and will increase its susceptibility to serious disease. Factors that may stress your turtle include a cage that is too small or too cold, recent shipping, and dehydration from infrequent soaking. Ensure that the humidity level and temperature is appropriate for the species, and observe for stressful conditions. If low food intake persists, consult your veterinarian.
