Hi, some eggs were disturbed at a construction site at my work. I brought them home and three of the eggs hatched into box turtles yesterday.
So, now what? I called the nature center and was told to keep them in a on damp aquarium gravel and feed soaked dogfood.
My question for this moment is - how do I make them eat?
They show no interst in the dog food - should I worry? or will they eat when ready?
Any info appreciated. I have fish, dogs, cats, hamsters but no experience with turtles.
