In Reply to: Fly river turtle - how much food? posted by daisy on April 20, 2003 at 17:50:24:

daisy-- It sounds like you're doing okay on food. I feed mine everyday. And I figured out a while ago how much my individual turtles will eat until they are full and now that's the amount that I give them everyday. They will stop eating when they are full. Try overfeeding him (or her) a couple of times and figure out what he will eat in one day...and determine the daily feeding amount that way. Warning: DO NOT feed them too much protein or your FRT will get a deformed shell! If you use a lot of pellets, make sure they are low protein pellets (less than 25% protein) and try to feed as much plant material as possible. Once the shell is deformed by overgrowth, it will never be completely the same again. --Maxx
