I was wondering if it was unhealthy to feed your turtles at night... Sometimes I\'m gone all day, and so should I feed them early before I leave the house, or is it ok for me to feed them when I get home before I go to bed? Thanks

It is better not to do that because they need the light to help digest the food. I would feed them before you leave so they can properly digest the food. Great question!

Thank you, that is what I suspected in theory but wasn\'t sure if it was true :)

If you feed them before you leave, they\'ll be able to bask and the heat will help them digest their food. They\'ll also have all day to work off some of the calories (less chance of getting overweight).
