Help! Our new baby turtle, that we FINALLY decided is a sweet little box turtle is still not eating ANYTHING. We\'ve tried Reptomin, romaine lettuce... even dried shrimp which was recommended as a treat and the baby eats nothing. I am afraid it (don\'t know if it\'s a boy or girl!) will starve, and I definitely don\'t want that! What else can we try??? This has been going on for OVER a week now.
Thanks!

Try some earthworms. (And it would be good to find a box turtle web site/forum to get more advise on caring for him).

Thank you!!! I will do that. I did find a site of someone who has raised lots of them and it had some interessting info... I think she is also not warm enough, so I am going to try that, too.
