i\'ve had my new painted turtle for about 1 week & it hasn\'t eaten. i\'ve tried feeder goldfish, earthworms, mealworms, pellets, & edible plants, still it won\'t eat. all it wants to do is hide, it does get active when i\'m not watching. how long can it go without eating?

I have a paint also, they can go a long time without eating. Is it possible that hes eating when your not watching, becasue you said the turtles active when it doesn\'t think your there...I would not worry, soon te turt will sart to eat. Just make sure the food is availale, and sooner or later gonna get hungry.


ALSO ONE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THING DO YOU HAVE A HEATER. IF THE TEMP OF WATER IS NOT AT LEAST IN THE 70S THE TURTLE COULD BE GOING INTO HIBERNATION, IN WHICH THEY STOP EATING.
