You have a Turtle/not a Tortoise, they like dried shrimp, romaine and spring mix lettuce, half of a grape. any carrot would have to be cooked before giving to them. A good Turtle pellet food from your turtle store would be fine. They also like small crickets, meal worms, ans small feeder fish.
Good luck...
