  • Mazuri® Aquatic Turtle Diet should be fed to juvenile or adult carnivorous turtles one time per day, three to five times per week.  The diet should be scattered on the water, where it will float. 
    • For best results, feed only the amount of diet the turtles will readily consume in a 24 hour period. Turtles will usually eat floating diet for 15 to 20 minutes, and then bask for a period of time, returning later in the day to consume remaining diet that has sunk to the bottom.
    • If daily feeding is desired, be attentive to ensure appropriate growth rates are maintained.
    • Do not overfeed as excess feed will decompose resulting in poor water quality. 
      • The actual amount of diet the turtles will eat varies with temperature.


    Storage Conditions

    For best results, ensure poly-bag seal is fully closed during storage, or store contents of open paper sack in container with sealing lid. Poly-bags are packaged under nitrogen to ensure optimal freshness. Store in a cool (75°F or colder), dry (approximately 50% RH) location. Freezing will not harm the diet and may extend freshness. Adhere to the “Best if used by” date or use within 1 year of bag manufacturing.
