Box turtles are omnivores and many, like Pokey, are very picky eaters. They should eat approximately 50% meat (worms, crickets, snails) and 50% vegetables, fruits, and flowers. Offering a wide variety foods is the best way to ensure that your box turtle gets all the nutrients he or she needs. Rachel feels that keeping a few packaged foods around helps ensure her turtle gets enough variety in her diet and that she always has food.

  • MAZURI Small Tortoise Diet was designed for smaller tortoise species, iguanas, and other plant eating reptiles, yet it is the first dry turtle food Pokey didn’t ignore. It has 20% protein, 10-15% fiber, calcium, phosphorous, and live probiotics to support gastric health.
  • Zoo Med Tortoise and Box Turtle FLOWER FOOD TOPPER is a flavorful treat that Pokey loves. The mixture is high in fiber (30%) and contains a little protein (8%).
  • Thrive Semi-Aquatic TURTLE DRIED TREAT is a blend of shrimps, mealworms, and crickets that is high in protein (55%) and low in fiber (7%).
