Well mcadaamia nuts, how about that.

Zaiya, You did not tell me if this is a terrapin or a tortoise. Anyway turtles do not usually digest nuts well. If you are looking for a good way to give them vitamin E. Stay with leafy vegetables. FOR BOTH TYPES. If you are trying to give them more protein...most tortoise are omnivorous and water turtles are better off with salmon or tuna mixed with their regular diet. Good Luck, Tina
