My razorback musk (now seven years old) usually has a diet of pellets, feeder fish and snails. Because of the lockdown, I've been unable to get her more fish after she's eaten all her current ones, and snails are harder to find since it's the winter. Apart from the pellets, are there any other proteins I can feed her to vary her diet? I hear that things like chicken can cause health problems, so I don't want to give her those, but otherwise I can't think of anything else that's suitable. Thanks!

I use small amounts of boiled white chicken meat for my RES, I think it's safe in moderation. You can also try canned tuna. They can also eat a lot less, especially during the slowdown of winter.
