My friends keep turtles as well, and I have heard when their turtles chase and eat small guppies, they swallow them in one bite. I don't know if they were exaggerating, but that brought up a question. Can turtles eat live fish whole with the skeleton or do they only rip off the flesh? Aslo I have seen Soldier, my RES, eating some loose skin sheddings that have been floating in the tank, is this safe? Thanks in advance.
