My daughter got a turtle when she was little and it died. We got another turtle but this time we called the Audoban Society to find out what we did wrong. They gave us the name of herpetologist in Westchester county an hour away. We were advised to feed him little fish called shiners, which are only available around Christmas and Easter in Italian-American neighborhoods. The herpetologist also gave us a recipe for cod liver oil, which we made and then injected with syringes into the shiners. With this, the turtle grew to within half an inch of record size.
