JurassiDiet Aquatic Turtle Food
JurassiDiet™ Aquatic Turtle Formula is THE premium food for aquatic turtles. It contains only the highest quality ingredients without low nutritional value ﬁllers like soy or corn meal, which can impair calcium absorption. It contains a broad spectrum of all the important components needed in an aquatic turtle diet: protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. JurassiDiet™ also contains probiotics, which reduce waste and benefit nutrient uptake as well as the immune system. Also try our JurassiDiet EasiShrimp™ whole river shrimp for Aquatic Turtles.
The Ca : P ratio should be no less than 1.2 : 1 , and is ideally maintained from 2 : 1 up to 8 : 1 depending on the species; but competing foods contain at least one of the following poor calcium sources: corn, wheat, or soy. Corn has a Ca : P ratio of 1 : 33, wheat has a Ca : P ratio of 1 : 10, and soy has a Ca : P ratio of 1 : 2.5. Furthermore, not only are corn, wheat, and soy not beneficial, they are actually harmful to your animals. They contain oxalates and phytates, which bind to calcium, thus preventing the calcium from being utilized. JurassiDiet™ distinguishes itself from the competitors by employing a calcium rich base, alfalfa. Alfalfa has a Ca : P ratio of 6 : 1.
DirectionsFeed daily as much food as the animal will consume in one feeding (1 hour). If extra food remains, then feed less. If all the food is consumed, increase amount daily until extra food remains.
"I have a Diamond Back Terrapin that was brought into me and I took index to "rescue." I had never been a turtle person, so when I wanted to feed it, I grabbed the JurassiDiet for turtles. Within five minutes of being in captivity this little quarter sized turtle attacked the pellets like I have never seen turtles do other pellets before."
