Hi, all, I found what I think it's a Florida Chicken Turtle swimming in my salt-chlorinated pool. I'm not sure if it can get out easily so I scooped her out and put her near some plants in my yard. When I returned it was back by the side of the pool and she jumped right in again. I fear the salt chlorinated pool water may be harmful to her. I'm an animal lover/rescuer and the thought that she may die in my pool saddens me very much. Any thought/suggestions, please? Thank you!!

I found a chicken turtle in my yard. I need to know what it eats. What do they eat in the wild?

    The Chicken turtles are omnivores. Their diet consists of crayfish, fish, fruits, insects, invertebrates, frogs, tadpoles and plants. For the first year they are born, Chicken Turtles are almost completely carnivores,but they sometimes eat plants.©
