Since young turtles have different nutritional needs than adults, it is important not only to match the pellet size to the small mouths of the juvenile animals but also the ingredients to their needs. Turtle Mix Baby is based on the innovative 3-pellet system and contains an increased proportion of valuable proteins. Especially in the growth phase proteins are particularly important, as proteins perform two basic functions. One is to provide energy to the body. The other is to deliver vital amino acids that the body needs to produce its own proteins. Due to the rapid growth of the animals, the supply of calcium is also very important as it is needed for the bones and the shell. Consequently there is an increased amount of calcium pellets in Turtle Mix Baby. In general Turtle Mix Baby is suitable as main food but we always recommend feeding the animals as varied as possible, e.g. in combination with Lucky Reptile Herp Diner Turtle Blend Baby but also live and frozen food. We recommend Turtle Mix Baby up to an age of about 6 months.
