This set of 4 turtle foods provides the perfect diet for all terrapins and turtles.
Terrapins and turtles are very particular to snails, fish, shrimps and other crustaceans. This set gives you the chance to test which food your turtle prefers and to buy this food later in larger containers. The other types of food can then be used for a change and as a supplement, as turtles and terrapins need a lot of variety in their diet to keep them in good health. Gammarus alone lead to deficiency symptoms and are definitely NOT a species-appropriate diet, although the turtles love to eat them!
The set contains:
JBL PROTERRA CRUSTARUS: complete food mix for aquatic and terrapin turtles consisting of crayfish, fish, shrimps and sticks
JBL PROTERRA MOLLUSCUS: whole snails, gammarus and fish sticks for all aquatic and terrapin turtles
JBL PROTERRA PESCARUS: whole fish with shrimps as a tasty treat for all terrapins and turtles
JBL PROTERRA GAMMARUS: tasty treats of gammarus for all water turtles
JBL expeditions often visit turtle habitats, be it in the deserts or, even more frequently, in the wetlands of the tropics. The observations of their way of life and eating habits are incorporated into the development of the JBL foods. This information directly from the wild is extremely valuable, as it would otherwise hardly be available.
The aim should always be to care for the animals in a species-appropriate way and ideally to provide for offspring in order to reduce the removal of species from the wild. Although breeding is not absolutely necessary for some species, as the species relevant to the trade come from offspring or are not endangered, JBL nevertheless considers it desirable to breed pets.
