Turtle Food WholeSale with Strictly!
Many pet owners look to different resources to find out what the best turtle food is for their pets. While the rule of thumb is that they need protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals, especially calcium due to the extra needs in their shells, you can find these in different edible sources. Commercial pelleted feed will probably end up being the main turtle food you give your animal because it is distinctly intended for turtles. It is made to float in the water and not fall apart as easily as other pelleted food, making it ideal for part of a turtle’s diet. A turtle should be fed a number of different things since a varied diet tends to be a healthier one.
Some examples of different turtle feed includes feeder fish, insects, fruits and vegetables, the latter being where their main source of nutrients should come from. And just as important as knowing what should go in your turtle, you should also make sure you know what not to feed your turtle. While turtles are known to tolerate most things, many recommend to keep them away from known poisonous plants such as leaves of rhubarb, potato and tobacco plants, avocado peel, seeds and leaves, tomato leaves and vines, and poison ivy.
Overall, turtles and tortoises alike can make great pets, but they are a lifelong commitment and require special conditions in order to account for its personality as well its cold-blooded nature. Owners should also be made aware that aquatic turtles might contain salmonella, so they’re not always recommended as pets for small children. There are some species of turtles that tend to either be friendlier or even sociable. They come in a variety of sizes, but most turtle owners enjoy caring for some of the smaller species. Regardless, they all need a fair amount of space. Some of them can be kept both in and outdoors.
