    This is a question kind of along the lines of one posted a few weeks ago about shark. My fiance and friends brought home a soft shell turtle today from the river. I’m wondering if the liver, kidneys, etc would be ok to feed in a raw diet. Also, it was a female, and had several large developing eggs inside. If I freeze it for a while (month or two) do you think it would be safe?

    You know, I’m really not sure. I’ve never heard of anyone feeding raw turtle. I mean I know my dogs have snatched up squished reptiles from the side of the road on walks – like frogs and snakes – before I could stop them. They’ve never gotten sick. I do know that turtles carry salmonella though and freezing wouldn’t kill the salmonella.
