Snapping Turtle meat!

Post by NeWbE123 » Fri Jun 29, 2018 7:16 am

I had a buddy of mine accidentally caught a snapping turtle while fishing. Him being the guy he is. He called me and asked me if I wanted the meat of it for my hermit crabs. All my friends know that I’m always looking for fresh meat for my crabs. I gave it a shot. I checked the pond to make sure it was a clean and safe pond. The meat lasted about 20 minutes in the tank until all the meat was eaten or hidden! Lesson learned. They love turtle meat! I’m pretty sure it even boosted their energy as they’ve been all over the tank today. I haven’t seen them this energetic in a long time.


(The turtle was killed in the most peaceful way. He would have died if he had sent it back with the hook stuck in his throat as the turtle had swallowed the hook)

Great! I have never tried any kind of turtle before.
I am glad your crabs like it, maybe I will give it a try!
