My 6yr old daughters turtle hasn\'t eaten in 4 days. It was given to my daughter about 2 months ago, its small, about 3 inches round. My sister in law had bought a turtle habitat and they gave her the turtle (since they couln\'t sell them) The only thing Yertle has ever eaten is crickets, he won\'t touch dry food. Any suggestions greatly appreciated, I\'m trying to educate myself on the correct care for him, he\'s so much fun to watch! Don\'t want him to get sick! thanks!!

Maybe try feeder fish or live shrimp?
Then slowly introduce dry food like dried shrimp, then into the food sticks.

What kind of set-up does he have? Is he active otherwise? Does he have any other symptoms?
