:i would like to know what everyone feeds their turts and how often are they supposed to eat. my turt is about 3 1/2-4 inches and he's the greediets turtle ive ever seen i put some feeders in his tank and he ate them all about 8 of them i wont feed him tomorrow because i think he over ate. PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS QIESTION.

A lot depends on how much you feed at one sitting. If it is a lot then feeding every third day for aquatics is probably sufficient , normally I feed every second day. Water plants and worms along with some commercial turtle food.

For a care sheet for RES go to: http://www.chelonia.org/Articles/trachemyscare.htm or you can find it and many other care sheets by going to the link below and clicking on "Care Sheets"
