What do you eat? What do turtles eat? – what do turtles eat?

       Turtles eat a wide range of food, including rice, wheat, peas, small fish, shrimp, insects, snails, refined pork and so on. Among them, the favorite food is small fish, refined pork and corn.

       In artificial feeding, in order to meet the needs of various nutrients for the growth of turtles, and avoid poor growth and anorexia due to single feed, a variety of feeds should be used, such as fish and shrimp, snails and mussels in animal feed and rice, wheat and corn in plant feed.

       Extended data:

       The life of turtles is closely related to the climate. They begin to eat at the beginning of April every year. The feeding activity reaches the peak from June to August and the weight gain rate is the fastest. After the temperature drops gradually in October, their food intake begins to decrease. When the temperature drops below 10 ¡æ, they stop feeding and enter the hibernation period.

       The temperature in spring and autumn is relatively low, and the tortoise is not active in the morning and evening, and only feeds around noon. Therefore, it is appropriate to feed at 8-9 am. From grain rain to autumnal equinox is the peak season for turtles to eat,

       Generally, turtles don’t move at noon, but they usually forage at 17-19 p.m., so it is better to feed at 16-17 p.m. Timing can make the turtle eat on time, get more nutrition, and can also ensure the fresh feed.

       Be concise

       According to the following types of feeding is the best, my turtle eat the following:

       1. Fresh shrimps, if frozen, should be placed until room temperature, or they will have diarrhea

       2. Raw meat. You can’t give it cooked meat or fat

       3. Bananas, it is said that turtles like to eat, but my family never eat them

       4. Shrimp or shrimp, remember to soak the shrimp for a period of time to remove the salty taste

       5. Fish in aquarium

       6. Loach, but after eating the stool will be very fishy

       Finally, remember to put food in the water for turtles to eat. It’s their nature to eat in water

       turtle

       In the natural environment, it feeds on worms, snails, shrimps and small fish, as well as stems and leaves of plants.

       Meat and cabbage

       Minced meat, bread, noodles, vegetables, sand worms (the kind of fish eat), dried shrimps, turtle special food, of which only minced meat and he Qingcai do not eat, the rest are eaten, and dried shrimps, sand worms, tortoise special food super favorite.

       Change the water frequently, not too much water (can let the tortoise poke out his head), try dried shrimps, and it’s best to raise them in glass tanks (turtles like the transparent environment around them. If they can’t see anything around, they will be very melancholy and reduce their food intake). Pay attention to whether there is eye disease in the turtle’s eyes (this kind of disease is very common), if so, treat it immediately.

       For meat eaters, raw meat, small fish and shrimp can be eaten. Generally, it’s not good to eat the feed bought in the flower and bird market. If you feed less, it’s not good to give it more

       Raw meat, do not keep with small fish together, it will attack

       Raw meat, bread worms, a little vegetable leaves are OK, don’t feed too much, just two or three bread worms a day. Even if you forget not to feed for a week or two, it doesn’t matter. She has strong vitality

       It’s better not to use feed

       Generally speaking, turtles can eat fresh fish and shrimps. If your turtle is very small, cut it with scissors

       If it’s bigger, it’s OK for a small live fish

       Of course, some red line worms and bread worms can also be used

       Just look at it. It’s disgusting

       And turtles can eat dog feed

       Even apples and bananas

       The most important thing is to develop habits from childhood.

       It is not advisable to feed it with sausage every day!

       The food additives in sausages have effects on the turtle’s body!

       Tortoise often eat will lack nutrition, easy to get sick!

       1¡¢ Animal feed: such as earthworms, silkworm pupae, snails, Tenebrio molitor, small fish and shrimp, snails, mussels and shellfish, as well as pig blood, viscera, moths, insects, etc. (can be trapped with black light at night).

       2¡¢ Plant feed: such as soybean cake, peanut cake, corn, sorghum, wheat, even rice, millet can also be fed to turtles. There are fruits and vegetables can also be appropriate with the turtle, such as pumpkin, wax gourd, watermelon skin, apple skin, duckweed and tender grass and potato.

       Extended data

       Feeding method of tortoise:

       1. The temperature in spring and autumn is relatively low, and the tortoise is not active in the morning and evening, and only feeds around noon. Therefore, it is appropriate to feed at 8-9 am.

       Pig nosed turtle (details)

       The simple and honest appearance of the pig nose turtle has been loved by many turtle lovers. Therefore, the pig nose turtle is becoming more and more common in the breeding family. However, to raise a good pig nose turtle, we should first understand some common knowledge of diseases. For example, do you know what the pig nose turtle should eat? ????

       ???

       Feeding, choice

       ???

       Pig nose is a kind of omnivorous turtle which mainly feeds on plant food. It mainly feeds on fruits, leaves, flowers and various aquatic plants (such as algae) falling in the river. At the same time, they also eat animal food such as molluscs, insect larvae, crustaceans, fish and mammal bodies. It can be seen that the feeding range of pig nose is wide, and this wide feeding habit brings us great convenience in raising pig nose. ??????

       In daily feeding, we can choose many foods. Here are some for your reference:

       ??????

       ??????

       1. Plant feed

       You mai Cai, green vegetables, celery, agaric, Chinese cabbage, amaranth, tomato, apple, pear, watermelon, cucumber, etc

       ????????

       2. Animal feed

       Meat (beef), fish (feed fish), shrimp viscera (poultry and livestock, etc.), various insects and their larvae (such as bread worms, crickets, red blood worms, etc.) and artificial turtle feed

       ??????

       3. Do not feed food

       ??

       Irritant food (leek, garlic, onion, pepper, etc.) spinach (high oxalic acid content)

       ????

       2. Precautions

       ?????

       The new pig nose may not adapt to the environment in the new environment. If there is no problem with the water temperature and water quality, there is no need to panic. When it gets used to the new environment, it will eat when it is hungry. If all the fresh food it can eat doesn’t satisfy him, try feed. Don’t rush hard to feed, it will not eat in a tense state, it will not die of hunger for a week or two. ????????

       ???

       Turtle food and small fish and shrimp can be used alternately, basic 2-3 times of turtle food and 1 time of fish and shrimp. After the fish and shrimp are bought, they are washed like rice several times to remove impurities and uncomfortable things. Then they are refrigerated. Before feeding, they are dipped in water in the tank and then thawed and fed. ????????

       The pig nosed turtle is an opportunist. Omnivorous food, such as cucumber, tomato and other vegetables, watermelon, grape, Hami melon and other fruits, white boiled egg protein is eaten. Sometimes I will feed it when I eat myself. It is always good to add some nutrition. However, we should pay attention to two points. The size should be about the same as the turtle food we usually eat. Because the pig nose turtle is a kind of swallowing food, it won’t tear it with its front paws after biting the food like some turtles. If you don’t eat it, please take it out as soon as possible, so as not to affect the water quality. ????????????????????????

       The key point is the feeding interval. It’s difficult to starve a turtle to death, but it’s really easy to grow a turtle quickly. So now I basically feed it once every two days, with 5-6 pieces of “dry” soybean size turtle food or 6-8 pieces of fish and shrimp about 2cm in size, so that the turtle will not grow too fast. ??????

       ???

       For this small creature, the pig nosed turtle may not be as eye-catching as some ornamental fish, but putting it in the tank is enough to make a scenic spot. What the pig nose turtle eats, what water quality it is suitable for and so on, we need to take good care of it. ?????????????????

       Simple turtle raising method

       1. Environment

       Make a tank, the bigger the better. It’s better to have a rectangular glass fish tank, or a large packing box. Turtles live in the water. Generally, the depth of turtle rearing is slightly higher than that of the turtle back. There is no need to be too deep. At most, it should not exceed twice the height of turtle back. It is better to provide a stone higher than the water surface for the turtle to climb up and bask on its back. In summer, we should pay attention to prevent the growth of algae in the tank. We can buy algae removing agents, which are sold in aquarium shops. The bottom of the jar can be paved with small stones or large pebbles. However, if it is paved, it will be very troublesome when changing water. The novice suggests using bare tank, that is, nothing is paved. Don’t put water grass in the water.

       2. Turtle water

       If you want to use tap water which has been air dried for more than 2 days (for the purpose of chlorine removal), it is better to prepare two plastic buckets for air drying, which can meet the needs of water exchange. It is recommended to change the water every two to three days. Only part of the water should be replaced each time. It is not necessary to change the whole water tank, unless the water and the surrounding area are very dirty. When part of the water is filled, the bottom dirty water will be sucked out by using the siphon principle with a plastic pipe, and then fresh water of the same capacity (that is, tap water that has been dried for 2 days) can be added into the tank. In this way, the turtle will not have white eye disease or rotten nails. If it’s too troublesome, you can use a filter, which is used for fish farming. If it is used with nitrifying bacteria, it can provide a more stable water quality environment for turtles. Change water more frequently in summer.

       2. Turtles eat in the water, feed directly into the water on the line. Turtles generally feed pork, beef, shrimp, fish, poultry and fish. These foods need to be chopped or shredded, but these animal feed is very easy to pollute the water quality. It is suggested that the tortoise should be taken out to feed. Novice suggested feed, good feed such as lifeline, Cunjin, are good. The feed is more convenient, and the professional turtle feed nutrition is better, and it is not easy to pollute the water quality. In summer, the temperature is high and the metabolism of turtles is fast. You can feed them once a day. However, it is generally recommended to feed them once every two to three days. Turtles do not need to be fed too often. They are animals with slow metabolism. It’s OK to feed them once a few days. As long as they have enough water, they don’t eat for half a month. The turtle usually feeds on the size of their head.

       4. About hibernation

       When the temperature drops below 13 ¡æ from October to May of the following year, turtles begin to hibernate until the temperature rises to 18 ¡æ. Hibernating turtles don’t eat, they just sleep. The simplest way to hibernate is to move the tortoise to a dark and quiet place indoors, hibernate in shallow water (just above the back armor), and change water once a month. In addition to changing the water, try not to disturb the turtle. Pay attention to the temperature should not be lower than 6 degrees, otherwise it will endanger the life of the turtle. However, it is recommended to use a heating rod in winter because of the high mortality rate of natural hibernation. The heating rod is the kind of tropical fish, the temperature is set at about 30 degrees, and the tank is covered.

       Feed type

       Turtle feed is more extensive. Strictly speaking, turtle has more feed, and the recipe is wider than turtle. There are mainly animal feed, plant feed and mixed feed.

       The first is animal feed: animal feed has high protein and fat content, which can promote the growth rate of tortoise and increase the number of breeding eggs, such as earthworms, silkworm pupae, snails, Tenebrio molitor, small fish and shrimp, snails, mussels and shellfish, as well as pig blood, viscera, moths, insects, etc. (can be trapped with black light at night).

       Second, plant feed: there are a wide variety of plant feed, which can be used to raise turtles according to local conditions, such as soybean cake, peanut cake, corn, sorghum, wheat, and even rice and millet. There are fruits and vegetables can also be appropriate with the turtle, such as pumpkin, wax gourd, watermelon skin, apple skin, duckweed and tender grass and potato.

       These plant feeds are rich in vitamins and are essential for the growth of turtles. When feeding turtles with dry and hard plant feed, they should first soak them in water and swell, then feed them. If conditions permit, they should be cooked and fed again. They have good palatability and prefer to eat them. Large pieces of plant feed should be chopped up first, and then put into the pool or on the bait table for feeding.

       The third is mixed feed: these feeds are nutritious and have many varieties. They are divided into juvenile, juvenile and adult feed according to their growth stages. The results showed that the growth rate, oviposition rate, fecundity, hatching rate and survival rate of the turtles were improved.

       feed

       The life of turtles is closely related to the climate. They begin to eat at the beginning of April every year. The feeding activity reaches the peak from June to August and the weight gain rate is the fastest. After the temperature drops gradually in October, their food intake begins to decrease. When the temperature drops below 10 ¡æ, they stop feeding and enter the hibernation period. Therefore, feeding should be carried out according to the growth characteristics of the tortoise. The general requirements are as follows:

       (1) Timing. The temperature in spring and autumn is relatively low, and the tortoise is not active in the morning and evening, and only feeds around noon. Therefore, it is appropriate to feed at 8-9 am. From grain rain to autumnal equinox is the peak feeding season for turtles. It is in the hot summer period. Generally, turtles do not move at noon, but they usually forage at 17-19 p.m., so it is appropriate to feed at 16-17 p.m. Timing can make the turtle eat on time, get more nutrition, and can also ensure the fresh feed.

       (2) Positioning. Fixed feeding points should be set up along the Bank of the pool. The feeding table of the feeding point should be close to the water surface to facilitate the turtle to swallow water and eat. The purpose of feeding feed in a fixed position is to make the tortoise form a habit, to find food, and to observe the activities of the turtle and check the feeding situation.

       (3) Quality determination. The feed should be kept fresh. After feeding, the leftover food should be removed in time to prevent the feed from rotting and stinking, affecting the turtle’s appetite and polluting the water quality. (4) Quantitative. The amount of feed to be fed depends on the temperature, water quality, appetite and activity of the tortoise. It depends on the appetite and activity of the turtle. It is appropriate to have a little surplus in the meal. Generally, it is fed once every 1-2 days.

       Extended data:

       The main nutrients needed by turtles are protein, fat, carbohydrate, inorganic salt and vitamin.

       1. Protein. Protein is the most important for the growth and development of turtles. The turtle takes protein directly from the feed. It is generally believed that the high protein content in the feed is good for the nutritional value of the feed and the growth of the breeding object is fast. The demand of protein content in the feed of tortoise is higher, and the demand is different in different growth stages. Generally, the protein content in feed is 38% – 42%.

       2. Fat. Fat is one of the indispensable components in the growth and development of tortoise. It is mainly for body fat stored in the body or used for exercise energy. The heat energy released by fat oxidation in tortoise body is generally twice that of carbohydrate and protein. The results showed that the fat content of turtle formula feed was 3.5% ¡« 5.0%. If the fat content was too high or too low, the feed efficiency, weight gain rate and meat gain coefficient would be affected.

       3. Carbohydrates. The main physiological functions of carbohydrates after being absorbed by the body are as follows: first, the amount of heat supplied; second, the composition of body components; third, the saving of protein in the body, which is used as the binder of feed. The adaptive amount of starch in turtle feed was 23% – 26%.

       4. Inorganic salts. Inorganic salts play an important role in the body of turtles. In addition to participating in the formation of bones and blood, inorganic salts also play a direct or indirect role in regulating body physiology, especially in laying eggs and reproduction of turtles. Among the necessary inorganic salts, calcium, phosphorus, sodium, chlorine, magnesium, zinc, copper and cobalt are easy to be lacked. Calcium and phosphorus account for 3 / 4 of all inorganic salts in the body, especially before and after laying eggs, the turtle must add “high-efficiency fast-growing element additive” such as bone meal.

       5. Vitamins. When tortoise is short of life support, growth and development are slowed down, metabolism is abnormal, and it is easy to suffer from various diseases. Most of the vitamins in the body can not be used, must rely on feed supply. Vitamins and animal hormones, the amount is not much, but essential, therefore, in the feed must be added with complex vitamins.

       Reference: Tortoise (animal name)_ Baidu Encyclopedia

       Tortoise need a lot of calcium, so in the choice of food can choose more calcium things to feed, such as small fish, shrimp.

       1. Do not feed cooked food, you can feed small raw meat, also do not feed pork and feed, easy to get sick, if the feed is not brand, do not feed, no nutrition, it is easy to die, of course, the brand is more expensive.

       2. Never feed the tortoise as much as he can, because the tortoise has no sense of satiety, which will cause the tortoise to grow too fast, or leg swelling, or even death. As for how much to feed, you can see the turtle’s head, how big the head is, how much you can feed. Small turtles can be fed once a day, and can be fed 2 to 3 days after they are big.

       3. Turtles are generally divided into land turtles, amphibious turtles and water turtles. Therefore, we should arrange its “home” according to different turtle species. According to the size of the turtle, choose the size of the fish tank. The space of the fish tank should not be too small, so that the small turtle can not move.

       First of all, do not feed raw pork. Some people like to feed pork. The greasy and residue of pork in the water will affect the water quality. Turtles are prone to white eye disease. Secondly, ham sausage. People don’t feed salty shrimp skin or any food with salt, which will make the tortoise swollen. Finally, the feeding should not be too simple. At the same time, some small fish and shrimps can be sold in the market Fish. It’s very interesting to watch the tortoise eat. I remember the turtle I bought in high school. In order to observe the turtle eating, I put the washbasin in front of the bed in the middle of the night, then threw a fish in it and secretly looked at it with a flashlight. Only then did I find that the normally timid tortoise ate so ferocious. Ha ha

       Tortoise generally prefer to eat lean meat, shrimp and turtle food. Generally speaking, the little turtle is relatively easy to raise, but it still has certain requirements for food. If you feel that the turtle food is a little single at ordinary times, you can choose to order a meal for it at an appropriate time, and feed some lean meat, shrimp and so on. However, when feeding the lean meat, the lean meat should be cut into the size of rice grains and placed close to its eyes.

       The feeding temperature of small turtles is between 23 ¡æ and 28 ¡æ. When it is cold, the air above the container also needs to be heated. Now, a better way is to install a headlight on the incubator to ensure the appropriate temperature for the turtle. The wires of the electric heater at the bottom of the box should not be too messy, which is not conducive to the activities of the small turtle.

       The water temperature in the boxes bought by the store is very low, especially in the north of winter. It can’t reach the suitable temperature for the little turtle. At this time, a rod tube can be installed to improve the water temperature. Little tortoise is not strict on the growth environment, but should pay attention to the diet. When feeding, we must pay attention to the balanced nutrition.

       Extended data:

       Living habits

       Tortoise is a semi aquatic, semi terrestrial reptile. It mainly lives in rivers, lakes, reservoirs, ponds and other waters. In the daytime, they often live in water. When summer is hot, they flock to seek shade. They are gentle in disposition and have no fight with each other. When encountering enemies or being frightened, the head, limbs and tail are retracted into the shell.

       Tortoise is an omnivorous animal. It feeds on animal insects, worms, small fish, shrimp, snails, mussels, plant tender leaves, duckweed, melon skin, wheat, rice and weed seeds. It has strong hunger tolerance and can not die of starvation without eating for several months.

       When the water temperature is below 10 ¡æ, the turtle will hibernate in the silt or loose soil with covering. The hibernation period is generally from January to April of the next year. When the water temperature rises to 15 ¡æ, the acupoint will move out. The water temperature was 18-20 ¡æ. Above 20 ¡æ, they are afraid of heat and hide in deep-water mud.

       Tortoises grow slowly. Under the normal conditions, the growth rate of turtles is as follows: the weight of the first instar is about 15g, the second is 50g, the third is 100g, the fourth is 200g, the fifth is 250-350g, and the sixth is about 400g. The male tortoise grows slowly, and the maximum sexual maturity is below 750g.

       1. Turtle can generally eat pig liver , pork (thin, raw), vegetables (such as lettuce), shrimp skin, fish, snails and so on. However, according to the different turtle species, there are different differences. For example, pearl turtles tend to be carnivorous when they are young. When they grow up, they tend to be herbivorous.

       2. Cut the food very small. The amount of food at a time is about the size of the turtle’s head. Remember not to feed one kind of food all the time. This will cause the turtle’s partial food and nutrition imbalance.

       3. Tortoise is not picky, leafy vegetables, Korean vegetables, carrots and other vegetables can meet its requirements. In addition, fish turtle favorite food, if you think it is more wasteful, you can feed some cat food dog food.

       Extended data:

       1. Never feed the tortoise as much as he can, because the tortoise has no sense of satiety, which will cause the tortoise to grow too fast, or leg swelling, or even death. As for how much to feed, you can see the turtle’s head, how big the head is, how much you can feed.

       2. Small turtles can be fed once a day, and can be fed 2 to 3 days after they are big. In addition, do not directly feed frozen food, which will make turtles seriously ill. You should thaw to room temperature before feeding.

       Tortoise is an omnivorous animal, feeding on animal insects, worms, small fish, shrimp, snails, mussels, plant tender leaves, duckweed, melon skin, wheat, rice, weed seeds and so on. The ability to endure hunger is strong. If you don’t eat for several months, you won’t die of starvation.

       Types of turtle feed

       1. Animal feed. Including a variety of freshwater, marine fish, molluscs, large eggs, aquatic

       Insects, meat and water of all kinds of livestock and wild animals, silkworm chrysalis, etc.

       2. Plant feed. It includes corn, wheat, soybean, millet, rice, all kinds of cakes, green

       Fruits, vegetables and aquatic plants in feed.

       3. Feed additive. It includes bone powder, calcium powder, salt and high-efficiency fast-growing element in minerals

       In addition, it was added with vitamin, malt and fish oil

       Amines, such as dry yeast, motherwort, seed starter, etc.

       The little turtle likes to eat vegetables such as cabbage, carrots, green cabbage leaves, wheat, corn, lettuce, peas, etc., which can be fed with nutrients.

       In artificial feeding, in order to meet the needs of all kinds of nutrients for the growth of turtles, and to avoid poor growth and anorexia due to single feed, a variety of feeds should be used, such as fish and shrimp, snails and mussels in animal feed and cabbage, carrot, green cabbage leaf, wheat, corn and lettuce in plant feed.

       In order to make the tortoise fully digest the feed, corn and peas should be crushed and soaked for about 2 hours before feeding. Other large pieces of food must also be chopped before feeding. It should also be noted that in different growth stages of turtles, feed containing different nutrients should be added according to their growth characteristics.

       Extended data:

       The life of turtles is closely related to the climate. They begin to eat at the beginning of April every year. The feeding activity reaches the peak from June to August and the weight gain rate is the fastest. After the temperature drops gradually in October, their food intake begins to decrease. When the temperature drops below 10 ¡æ, they stop feeding and enter the hibernation period.

       The feed should be kept fresh. After feeding, the leftover food should be removed in time to prevent the feed from rotting and stinking, affecting the turtle’s appetite and polluting the water quality.

       The feeding amount of feed depends on the temperature, water quality, appetite and activity of tortoise, and depends on the appetite and activity of the turtle. It is appropriate to have a little surplus in the current meal, and feed once every 1-2 days.

       The Brazilian tortoise is a peaceful animal. It looks stuffy and can’t bark. It moves slowly. It doesn’t mind what it eats, but it’s not. The tortoise also has its own preference for food. Turtles are omnivorous animals, usually foraging underwater. But many pet turtles are dry raised, and when feeding, be sure to give enough water for the turtle to drink.

       Brazil turtle

       Turtle usually food can be: pork, mutton, animal viscera, bread worm, earthworm, live fish, shrimp, shrimp, vegetables, rice, fruits and so on. Or go to the pet market to buy small fish, so that turtles can eat on their own, in order to stimulate the turtle’s appetite for food.

       The best meat food for turtles is raw meat, and the best food for insects is fresh. The raw meat should be soft, do not add any salt and other substances, and ensure that there is enough drinking water.

       Turtles like to eat vegetables such as cabbage, carrots, green cabbage leaves, wheat, corn, lettuce, peas and so on, which can be fed with nutrients.
