I have some box turtles in the backyard and also am taking care of a baby turtle that I recently rescued. I feed them and like to try something new to give them variety in their diet. I found some Zoo Med products at Petsmart and decided to try them. One of these products is called Red Banana Tropical Fruit Mix-Ins. This food comes in a flip top can and is of a paste consistency. It is meant to be mixed in with other foods, such as pellets.
Red Banana is good for geckos, iguanas, turtles and hermit crabs. One small can holds 4 ounces of food. Once the can is opened, it must be kept refrigerated.
I must say that my turtles chow down this food in record time. They all seem to love it, even the little baby. I am really glad that I found this food, because it seems to satisfy the turtles, and I know that I'm giving them something that is good for them to eat.
One can lasts me about three weeks, but I am feeding a number of turtles. Red Banana Tropical Fruit contains red bananas, water, vegetable oil, guar gum and potassium chloride. This food can be fed to turtles about three to four times a week and is not meant to be a mainstay but an additional treat for them to receive combined with other foods.
Zoo Med also makes Papaya Fruit Mix-Ins, and the turtles seem to like that as well. I have no complaints about this food and would recommend it to anyone who has pet turtles or reptiles to feed.
