When it comes to feeding bananas & strawberries to turtles, how much do you give them? Do you leave cut up pieces of fruit or what?

not too much especially the bananas cz they're high in fats..veggies are better..u can still give them those fruits as treats exactly like when u give them worms, meat, shrimps..

for the size, it depends on ur turtles..if they can't bite it u can cut it into pieces to help them :)

The turtle food should be the main meal, everything else is considered a treat, even feeder fish, but those are fresh treats :lol:

I'd skip the bananas--too high in phosphorus. If you insist on giving them at all, give only a small amount and very rarely. Strawberries are acidic and also should be given only occasionally.

Yeah, I've tried feeding my turtles blueberries, strawberries, and bananas, and they didn't seem to like them very much.
