My cousin dropped a piece of ginger(cooked,ugh!) into the turtle tank and my little Cabbage(a 2.5 inch red ear turtle) went on nipping and swallowing it. Nothing bad happened afterward but I'm not exactly sure turtles can digest ginger. He seemed to like it so goes another question? is it okay to feed him ginger sometimes?
