African Side neck turtle

Asked September 17, 2020, 5:45 PM EDT

This may sound silly but can African side neck turtles have green beans as part of their diet?
There is very little but conflicting information online on exactly what vegetables or fruit this type of turtle can safely eat? I have a rescue side neck and I'd very much appreciate any info on diet for this guy!

I'm not sure much is known about their diet in the wild. If you try green beans I would suggest fresh ones that have not been treated with any pesticides. Sorry I can't be more certain!
