All my turtles have been eating gravels for 2 weeks now. I don\'t think that they are hungry because they do it even right after they are fed. In fact they are digging for the right sized gravel to swallow 24/7. PLEASE HELP!

I\'d remove the gravel and put larger sized stones in there that they can\'t eat. Some people say that as long as the gravel is small enough to pass through their intestinal tract that they\'ll be okay, but I wouldn\'t chance it. There\'s always a chance of impaction. I\'d go with a bare bottom or larger sized stones. Goodluck!
