Linda, you are doing the right things and the turtle's set up sound good, so there is a good chance the turtle will surprise you one day and eat Just keep offering it delectable items.

When I got my first turtle, a three-toed, he would not eat ANYTHING either. He was wild caught and the family who had him before me was worried sick. I found something he would eat, ripe cantaloupe. For over a year I had to make him little cantaloupe sandwiches and hide fruits, veggies and protein between slices of cantaloupe. After a year he began to eat food if cantaloupe was mixed with it. After 3 years he finally became a good eater. Now he'll eat anything. Hang in there! Tess
