    Happy turtles

    By Stinky151 on Aug 9, 2021

    So glad I found this deal. We feed our pond turtles every day and they look for me to toss in these pellets and they gobble them up. Was buying at a local branch of a large pet supply company- this was a great alternative.

    Great source of protein

    By K321 on May 4, 2021

    My turtle loves this food and it makes me happy to see that he does. He’s kind of picky. But I know without worry that he is getting the best nutrition with this food. Chewy is awesome to do business with!

    This turtle food is high in protein which juvenile aquatic turtles need as part of their diet while in their growing stages. It's also natural and not formulated with all those bad ingredients like other brands which I stay away from. I would 100% recommend this product!

    great turtle food!!

    By Jenn on Jan 5, 2020

    I was worried my RES wouldn’t eat this food but there was no hesitation at all! He’s still a pretty smallish turtle, three inch shell, but doesn’t seem to have a problem swallowing these bigger pellets. I’m glad I have a variety of different pellets and food I can give him now. I recommend this for its price and quantity.
