turtles eat pebbles?

Post any questions you have about a turtle indoor setup here. Or if you have a link to your indoor setup picture we would love to see it.

Just keep a close eye on her. Some turtles eat pebbles and it never bothers them. Some however, will have problems. You did right by taking the gravel out. Keep an eye on her and good luck.

My little girl has eaten hundreds of pebles. But she is still active and eating, HEALTHY!!!!! Don\'t worry about it, athough they may get prolapse. If this happens, go to the Turtle First aid section on this site.

Willie, I seriously don\'t think you should continue to allow your turtle to eat rocks. It isn\'t healthy!! Also prolapse can be very serious, and is better to avoid all together!
