I have been feeding my turtle a mix of bullets and dried bugs like you buy at the store. She doesnt have much interest in the pellets shes obsessed with the bugs. Shes only a year or so old. :msgreen: is her diet wrong?

Not sure what bullets are for turtles, but yes you need to correct the diet... especially for such a young turtle. If the turtle is otherwise healthy, you might have to do a little tough love and only offer pellets for awhile. Some people dip it into canned tuna water or make their own treat with it as a the main ingredient.
