Turtles can and do enjoy eating vegetables such as carrots. However it is important to keep in mind that they need to have a varied diet in order to stay as healthy as possible. Land turtles love to eat vegetables such as carrots, kale and lettuce.
If you are thinking about feeding your turtle carrots it is important to shred the carrots so that they are easier for your turtle to eat and digest. This also reduces your turtle’s chances of choking. Carrots are inexpensive and can be purchased in a number of different places. Anywhere from the local grocery store to your neighborhood garden or produce stand and can also last for quite awhile if you buy the individual smaller packs and only open them up when necessary.
Carrots are probably one of the healthiest things your turtle can eat as veggies are a staple in any turtle’s diet. Your turtle should be given at least 1 serving of vegetables daily. If they eat insects they need to eat every other day.
