Turtle Pudding Success!
Posted 09 February 2012 - 10:00 AM
For anyone whose turtles won't touch fruits of veggies, I highly recommend trying turtle pudding. There are a ton of recipes on these boards and on the internet. I used what I had available, and I froze the excess. I didn't use any tuna fish or tuna water because I didn't have any on hand (I did have a can of tiny salad shrimp, so I used that), but I've heard that the tuna smell makes it even more appetizing for your turtle.
Anyway, I just wanted to share the excitement- I could do a happy dance right now, I am so pleased that my turtle FINALLY ate some veggies!

One thing however. How do you actually feed it to the turtles? Ok so its frozen, you pull it out of the freezer, defrost it I assume and put it where? I feed my turts in the cage, so should I put it on the basking area, should I get a dish for food and put that on the basking area, or should I feed them outside of the cage completely?

My turtle really likes to eat in her water dish, so I just put the little chunk of thawed pudding in the dish and she eats it there. It is definitely messy, so I wouldn't recommend that you feed it in her cage, unless you can keep it confined to the water dish or food dish, which can easily be washed.
I can't say enough good things about turtle pudding. I know it isn't a magic solution for everyone, but for me it really worked!
