I have a two month old striped mud turtle and have been doing lots of research on their diet but despite that mine only likes a few different foods. He gets dried bloodworms, some shrimp, mealworms, and small amounts of fresh sardines, shrimp, and tilapia. He refuses to eat any kind of green (even if it's dried) and also has no interest in pellets. I was wondering if anyone has any advice? I have two other turtles but he is a different kind so this is a bit difficult. Any help would be much appreciated!

Attaching a few photos I've taken since I've had him!

It looks like he just unfolded, I was looking for an egg tooth!

Very cool!
I found him when he was only a few days old, the plastron photo was that night. I don't believe I ever saw an egg tooth on him, although it could have been so small I missed it
