Hi, I got a alligator snapping turtles a couple of weeks ago. For two weeks, all it ate was a small guppy. I tried dried turtle food, but it was not interested in it at all. I put live guppies in the tank, but I do not think it can catch any of those. I found a dead guppy a couple of days ago and a few hour later, it disappeard, so I think the turtle ate it. I read a bood and learned alligator snappers are also scavengers, so I gave more pre-killed guppies, but it still does not eat it. I wonder if there is a better way to get it to start eating. Any suggestions?
