Product information

Especially for the nutritional requirements of turtles and terrapins
Most turtles and terrapins are omnivores. They particularly like to eat fish, other aquatic animals and often also aquatic plants. JBL offers a comprehensive range for the species-appropriate diet for turtles, to meet the respective requirements of the animals’ size. Dried fish, molluscs, water insects and crustaceans are most important and constitute a species-appropriate, natural diet. Young turtles basically eat the same as adult aquatic and terrapin turtles,but are more carnivorous. Adult turtles eat more and more plants as they get older. When it comes to feeder animals, the small turtles only ever choose the smaller versions, as they are unable to easily bite everything off, despite their sharp jaws.

Other good reasons to feed JBL food
Impressive palatability for turtles: Practical research including feeds in the wild. No vitamin loss thanks to airtight packaging. The JBL food tins and buckets are 100 % recyclable, as the tin, sealing film, label and lid are made from one PP mono-material. There is no need to separate the label from the tin, as is actually necessary with other food tins. The thickness of the plastic has also been reduced, as very high-quality PP (polypropylene) is used. The use of polypropylene ensures full recyclability at the end of the product life cycle. The recycled material is used for the production of new products and thus the spread of pollutants in the environment is minimised.

Turtle species for which this food is ideal (examples):
- Cooter turtles (all species)
- Red-bellied short-necked turtle
- Mud turtles
- Ornamental turtles
- Softshell turtles
- Musk turtles
- Spotted turtle
- Wood turtles
- Terrapins
- Map turtles
- Chinese three-keeled pond turtle

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.

PUSH messages from JBL

What are PUSH messages? As part of the W3C standard, web notifications define an API for end-user notifications that are sent to the user's desktop and/or mobile devices via the browser. Notifications appear on the end devices as they are familiar to the end user from apps installed on the device (e.g. emails). Notifications appear on the end user’s device, just like an app (e.g. for emails) installed on the device.

These notifications enable a website operator to contact its users whenever they have a browser open - it doesn’t matter whether the user is currently visiting the website or not.

To be able to send web push notifications, all you need is a website with a web push code installed. This allows brands without apps to take advantage of many of the benefits of push notifications (personalised real-time communications at just the right moment).

Web notifications are part of the W3C standard and define an API for end user notifications. A notification makes it possible to inform the user about an event, such as a new blog post, outside the context of a website.

JBL GmbH & Co. KG provides this service free of charge, and it is easy to activate or deactivate.
