My RES loves popcorn...it is air popped with nothing on it...we only give him one popped kernel a day
Is this ok for him to eat?

I wouldn't recommend it. Corn is pretty starchy, and most people actually avoid it for turtle diets. It may plug up your turtle's digestive system, or even worse cause it to choke on a kernel.

...And, despite the name, caramel turtles are also inappropriate.
