I have found this to be a good change of pace food for my mud turtles. I use it occasionally to supplement the turtle pellets/chopped earthworms/feeder minnows/romaine lettuce diet.
For about 2 dollars, you can get over a pound of beef heart and I slice it into small strips, make into small freezable packets, and thaw out when needed. A pound goes a long way.My wifes hieroglyphic cooters and western painted love it as well.

I use it also. Its nutritional, cheap, and the turtles love it.

I do the same with chicken hearts which I can get like 3 lbs. for $2.00 at an area Amish farmer's market - I rotate with nightcrawlers and pinky mice on a varying basis with my boxies. Great supplement for snappers also.

all great foods, I use the beef heart, chicken hearts, and chicken gizzards from the grocery store. all cheap and good additions to a well balanced turtle's diet. besides, what else can fill up a large ally snapper? LOL
