    No.

    Many of them will eat lettuce, but none of them should. Lettuce has virtually zero nutritional value. Baby aquatics are primarily carnivorous anyway.

    You need to study up on turtle care.

    you will desire to be extra particular at this style of turtle. yet regardless of the species, the respond isn't any. Lettuce has rather any nutritional fee. this is especially created from water. Water turtles (sliders, dirt turtles, and terrapins) consume especially stay nutrition interior the wild. In captivity they consume fish, worms, and crickets. you additionally can feed them commercially attainable turtle pellets alongside with occasional stay nutrition. container turtles and different land tortoises feed on a sort of vegetables, end result, and bugs. maximum vegetables which contain collard vegetables, mustard vegetables, and kale are healthful. they'll consume end result like bananas, cantaloupe, and apples. they like bugs like mealworms and earthworms. in case you stumbled on the turtle interior the wild, please enable it bypass. Turtles taken from the wild in no way do besides in captivity. Captivity will rigidity them out and frequently kill them. in addition they get very great and are difficult to shield precise. till you opt for for to purchase an 80-a hundred gallon tank, warmth lamps, filters, and uvb lighting fixtures fixtures, do no longer save a turtle. they are not pets like fish or hamsters.

    Lettuce is a useless green to give reptiles...it has no nutrients. If your turtle eats leafy greens escarole, endive and collard are much better choices. So no, no turtle should eat lettuce!
