Feed them if you must, but tread carefully! Feeding turtles in the mouth is a very bad idea…
It isn’t clearly visible in the photo (low resolution), but there is quite a lot of blood dripping from the man’s finger; he’s just been bitten by the turtle who -surprise- mistook it for food. Totally unintentional but no less painful!
