I feed my Eastern Box turtle a mixture of fruits, mostly strawberries, melons, and other berries. Sometimes we give her cooked, unseasoned chicken pieces. In her enclosure there are plants and a water hole, and the soil is kept moist. This creates an environment for some worms and other invertebrates, which I think Charlotte sees as "opportunity" meals to supplement her mostly fruit diet.
Could I increase Charlotte's nutrition by planting certain indoor plants in her enclosure? The soil base varies about 3-5 inches in depth. Perhaps there are other ways you can suggest to add to her nutrition?
We live in Georgia where daytime temperatures vary widely. Charlotte seems to be interested in hibernation. Last year we put her enclosure in the storage room, in the window, put an extra top layer of leaves and debris, and kept the soil damp but not wet. Charlotte seemed to do okay. It is colder there than the rest of the house about 50-55 degrees Fahrenheit. Sometimes colder, on occasion a bit warmer, reflecting the wide temperature range for the area we live. We will do the same thing this year, unless you have some other ideas to share?
This is redundant! If I have an account, shouldn't that info be available to the respondent.
