WE just adopted to RES. The previous owners had them a year and never gave them greens. Whats the best way to get them to eat the greens? We have been offering them everyday and all they seem to want is the pellet.

Veggie clip is always worth a shot. Find it at the fish section of pet stores. Next thing to try is the jell-o thing and make your own veggie treat.

Turtles like res can take some time so be patient they will start to eat them. Try carrots or jello shots. That's the first things mine ate.
