Just curious, where have you heard that turtles can (or should) eat just every few days? I had a RES for 5 years and the only resource that told me to feed him every few days (as opposed to every day) was the flea market my dad was stupid enough to buy him from. (they also told him turtles only grow in relation to how much space they are provided and forgot to mention they need USB light and a basking area and pretty much a billion other things). My go-to says adults are fed, at a minimum, vegetables on a daily basis (http://redearslider.com/pellets.html).

Very few wild animals actually wait days between meals, is my thought.

Technically my experience is with a tortoise, not a turtle, and I think their feeding is different. But Mikey is going on 30 years old (had him for 18), and he's happy and healthy.
That tortoise is older than me hehe. Reptiles are the best, I'm getting a chameleon next.

Totally unrelated, Obi is so adorable. Okay, that's all
