So I've just come into the ownership of a Mexican wood turtle. It's a long story but normally with something like this I'd do a lot of research prior to accepting the responsibility. In this case I didn't have the chance.
He's around 4 years old
I've been told he's very fussy with eating but loves live mealworms so we have some.
How often should they be fed?
We were given a 'bowl' for him to eat out of however everything I've read online seems to lead to the idea that as a turtle he'll feed in the water; but from what I understand they like to dig and hunt for insects. How should I give him the live meal worms? Should I drop them into his pond for him, or should I place them into the shallow bowl he has and let him have them from there? I'm concerned they may crawl out into the substrate - is this an issue?
