Zoo Med ReptiSticks Floating Aquatic Turtle Food, 1oz
Most aquatic turtles commonly kept as pets, such as red-eared sliders and painted turtles, are omnivores. Omnivores require a balanced diet of both plant and animal matter to get the nutrition that they need.
Zoo Med ReptiSticks are specially formulated to meet the needs of aquatic species of turtles, newts, frogs, and crabs. This food is made with fish, shrimp, and kale to simulate these species' natural diet, and is fortified with added vitamins and minerals to help them thrive in captivity.
Instructions for Use:
Feed 1-2 times daily, as appropriate. Place a small portion of Zoo Med ReptiSticks in the water and allow them to eat for up to 5 minutes. Remove any uneaten food with a net after 1 hour.
It is best practice to offer fresh food as the majority of your pet's diet. However, prepared diets like Zoo Med ReptiSticks Floating Aquatic Turtle Food add essential variety to their nutrition and are good to have on hand as a backup in case of emergency.
