I normally rely very little on aquatic turtle food for my map turtle. The ingredients in most are abysmally lacking in nutrients, even important ones. Most are made with a LOT of fillers, with very little fish meal or anything of value in them. I went into my local Petco for crickets, and remembered I had been out of turtle pellet for 2 months now (which is fine, because he gets a very wide variety of earthworms, live insects, frozen fish/shrimp/krill, fresh fruits and vegetables, etc.) The reason I have not bought more in 2 months is because every label I checked revealed a can full of nutritionally worthless junk, mostly fillers, preservatives, and food dye. Anyways, I picked up Petco's store brand of turtle pellet, which was free of the food dyes and preservatives, but also included vitamin and mineral supplements, and had fewer fillers in it than other brands. IF the label is to be believed, this may actually be a decent brand. It expires in July 2011, I know I will not have used it all by then, as rarely as I feed it. Maybe I can also feed it to my bugs. I was not expecting this, but it's sure nice to see it.
