i have 5 eastern box turtle hatchling. they are only a few days old. only one has showed intereset in eating some lettuce but now none of the seem interested. i had read somewhere that they may not eat for the first few days up to 2 weeks. is that correct? i have some zoomed box turtle food that is blended fruits and veggies as well as meal worms. what else should i offer? thanks.

Anyway. I used to have 2 EBT but I gave them to a friend of mine. :( I miss them. Anywho, I don\'t know how to feed a baby EBT. :( Sorry.

For some reason my EBT didn\'t like the Can \'O product line. They really HATED the snails. I don\'t know why. It\'s like they just turned their nose up at them. ?? Oh well.

Where are you located? I might be able to get you a baby tortoise for real cheap. But only if you live in Southern CA, near Palm Springs, sorry :(. My friend\'s tortoises love to have babies (over and over and over and over................)! lol :)
