How To Keep Your Pet Box Turtles Healthy And Happy In Your Pet'S Enclosure

When pet box turtles stop eating for a short time, it’s often because there’re something not quite right with their environment. This can cause them stress, which leads to a loss of appetite. It’d be important to make sure you’ve been providing the correct environment and food. Box turtles are not that large of an animal. They still need a spacious enclosure. An enclosure that is too small can stress them and potentially cause them to lose their appetite. Experts recommend a pen that is at least 4 feet by 4 feet. In general, juvenile box turtles tend to be more carnivorous, so focus on slugs, earthworms, and other live items. Offer a variety of produce, including dandelion greens, collard greens, crescent sticks, and small amounts of fruits. Bananas and strawberry are popular. . . .
