The aquatic turtle species in the Kinosternon genus are called mud turtles. They can be found in South America, the United States, Mexico, and Central America. There are 22 species and 15 subspecies of mud turtles.
Most mud turtles are either carnivorous or omnivorous and eat mostly invertebrates, fish, carrion, and plant matter. Striped mud turtles eat insects, snails, fish, carrion, dried krill, plants, and algae.

Omnivorous turtles need to eat lots of greens, vegetables, and fruits, alongside animal protein. If the turtle is omnivorous, it would be best if you fed it worms, fish, snails, pellets, and sometimes vegetables, fruits, and dried insects.
