picky turtle didn’t even touch, waste of money!

I got this last December for my picky box turtle! He prefers his good either alive or fresh from the refrigerator. I tried this hoping he would like it. I tried several other kinds too. Unfortunately he didn’t like this, as I feared. I guess I will have to stick to live bait and fresh veggies with him.

What you see in the picture is NOT what you get :|

I, the human, was disappointed as soon as I saw it. The picture leads you to believe it's full of dried mealworms, mushrooms and strawberries. But it is really mostly what looks like rabbit food pellets with a teeny amount, literally, a MINUSCULE amount of the "gourmet" items. Because all I could see through the clear bottle were the pellets, I actually dumped the contents onto a plate to see if it actually had any of the gourmet items in it. Ok, on to the what the turtles thought.... thumbs down, they won't eat it and they'll eat anything. Money wasted as it's not worth the effort to return.

Sounds good, but....

Our turtle won't eat this. I will try again, but so far, he won't have anything to do with it. Prefers the canned box turtle food, food I cut up for him, and fresh worms.

Looked good, but not to my turtle.

My turtle would not even try to eat it. We thought it looked good, but some reason he refused to eat. Normally he will try anything,not this.
