In Reply to: New wood turtle not eating :( posted by alimx on April 19, 2003 at 20:20:19:
:Tuesday night I brought home a Central American Wood Turtle (aka Ornate Wood Turtle). She's in a 40 gallon enclosure with a litter box 'pond' and the other half land. She's been exploring her new home, but spends most of her time in the water. I have yet to see her eat. I've been offering red leaf lettuce, kale, romaine, string beans, and fresh berries. Temps are running around 78°-82° and I've got a UV light on during the day.
:Is this normal for her not to be eating? The pet store said that she had been checked by the vet within the past 3 weeks and was healthy. Her water has been getting dirty, I've cleaned it out once and have a filter running continuously. Any suggestions and advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
I have the same problem.I gave mine bananas and they ate them before anything else. So far thats all they ate. Another thing I would do is give them a hide dox full of leaves and dirt. My two dug right to the bottom and I think they feel more secure.
Good luck and please keep us posted.
