Sea Turtles live only in the salt water environments. Hatchlings feed on tiny crustaceans, mollusks, seaweed, and fish eggs. It would be difficult for you to keep them at home. It is common for hatchlings to be eaten by predators as they move from their nests to the water. We suggest returning to the beach where you rescued the turtles and releasing them back into the ocean.
