Where do you feed your turtle? My Central American Woods ate exclusively in the water. Their favorite foods were lettuce leaves and apple slices, left to float on top of the water. With feeding them in the water, make sure you change the water often or use an underwater filter such as a fluval. The water depth for my CAW's was about 3-4 inches. Keep trying the other foods you are now, to give them a balanced diet as well, but from my personal experience the two I mentioned were their favorites. They gorged on apples the first day I aquired them, which was a great sign. Good luck. Keep us posted.
