I make a mix for all my box turtles, including the babies...veggies, greens, fruit, soaked turtle brittle, or mazuri, or trout chow, cooked sweet potato, cooked carrots...chop everything up very small, and add some ground venison. They all love this, including the babies. A week before I stop feeding for hibernation, I feed only ground venison with sweet potato (Wellness dog food in a can). When I start off a baby introducing greens and fruit, I give them this mix. I give the same mix to my Cherry Heads, only adding the venison once every two weeks.
