    I have a female red-eared slider approximately 5 years old and I can not find any literature on why she is consuming her own feces. She was not fed regularly by a previous owner and I have seen her thrive and grow in size since I have gotten her on a regular and comparatively generous feeding schedule. I assume it is a nutrition problem although she is on a commercial 35%Protein growth formula. I have a powerful filtration system, heat and her tank is clean although I have plans to put her in a bigger tank. Am I not feeding her enough?

      Turtles and tortoises are naturally coporphagic (eat their feces) as a way of establishing normal and varied gut flora (bacteria). As long as she appears otherwise healthy, has a clean tank and good diet this would not concern me. It really is not related to any malnutrition or lack of food – sounds like she has a good home.
