Some wild RES will eat rocks for some mysterious reasons but to be on the safe side it is a good idea to remove the rocks...your turtle should at this point really enjoy eating veggies, offer anacharis, boiled bok choy, and other leafy greens...things like crab make a good occasional treat (maybe just once a week covered in calcium powder?). Since RES are freshwater turtles I do not recommend that much seafood (I limit shrimp to just one per week as a treat).

: I have my RES since 8 years and since few months i noticed she was eating her rocks, does anyone have had the same problem!??!

: For sure i remove rocks from his tank but there must be an explanation.

: I also want to know how often you think it is better to feed a 8 years old turtle and what kind of food to give. I feed her with crab and some times with pellets and veggies like carrots. Your turtle looks like a female...
