My brother caught a baby softshell when he was ut fishing(about 2 inch shell diameter). Wondering what they eat at this small size-until this the smallest I have seen was about twice this size-a lot of the minnows I buy are longer than this turtle's shell.Would simple turtle sticks be good or bugs/small baitfish, or something else entirely? He has had it about a week and been giving it bits of fish, before letting it go again I want to give it a few "proper" meals.
