    Gosh I don't know. Last time I had baby turtles was when I was little and I had 6 of them in a small 10 gallon tank with gravel, rocks as basking areas, no heater, no lights, a small filter, and I fed them only zoo med turtle pellets. I had them for a year or so no complications and I ended up releasing them in the pond out side... :-/ yeah everything bad. I am having the same problem with my stupid Map Turtle! I hate him because he will not act normal! Try soaking their turtle pellets in tuna juice and then feed them to your babies. Maybe that will work! I have not done that with my turtle I'm doing the tough love approach. I've had him for over 2 years and I'm over his shenanigans. Join to forum @ redearslider.com some of them know their stuff! Ask a vet if you're really worried.

    Baby turtles do not like vegetables they're mostly carnivorous as babies! This jello is designed to start introducing fruits and vegetables to turtles that are picky. Here's a website I most of my turtle knowledge from www.redearslider.com Also make sure you have a water heater and the water is at 76 degrees. Baby turtles need warmer water than mature turtles. If the water is too cold they could get sick and die. Also make sure the water is deep enough so if they flip over on their backs they do not drown and they need land to bask on with a heat lamp and a UVB full spectrum bulb. There's a lot to know about proper turtle care! It's difficult and sometimes turtles are just picky and I have no idea! I have a turtle in an amazing set up with everything he needs and he still doesn't eat or bask or even swim often. I'm at a total loss!
