i\'ve been told at the pet store that little res\'favourite food are live crickets. They are not only a res\' favourite but i\'m also told that crickets are a complete meal containing all the food elements a turtle needs. the crickets have to be alive though because after being dead for a certain period of time they release a poisonous substance but are otherwise completely edible.

how long have you had them? If turtles are put in a new environment, like leaving the pet store and coming to a tank in your home, it takes a while for them to get used to it and start acting normal. When I got mine, took a week for them to start eating.
