hi in need to know what do i do my redtail ate a baby turtle do i leav it or hav to take it out
Well there are 3 things you can do.
1. Pull the turtle out of its mouth possibly hurting the rtc.
2. Leave it eat it. And it may be spit out later by the rtc.
3. Keep a eye on it so it doesn't choke.
I guess 3 is a combination of 1 and 2. I have seen pics of rtc eating suction cups and spitting them out.

sixe of turtle and size of redtails mouth?
Is the read tail having problems breathing?
He look like he breathing fine but he is not really moving much
RTCs are active when they are hungry so the fish not moving much after eating the turtle is not suprising.
My guess is that the RTC will puke it up at some point. Good luck and keep an eye on it.
^^^^ yup mine ate a pleco and 2 days lattor puked the rest up
Mine once ate a rock-like plant fertilizer tab. He was weirdly polygonal until he puked it up. It turned out to be a moot point when a lungfish I stupidly had in the same tank as him bit him in half later that day. :irked:
but if doesnt puke it up can his body dissove the turtle shell?
Yeah, it'll be fine. RTC eat just about anything, it'll either digest it or chuck it after a while.
