Hello,
I have a young (2" shell) YB slider that was rescued from a pool filter. The turtle is doing very well and has quite an appetite. She(?) is eating a regular diet of pellets and meal worms. My question is she seems to want to eat as much much as I will give her. When ever I walk into the room she comes out and wants to be fed. I am worried about over feeding, so how much should a turtle that size be eating?
