Does anyone know if freshly killed wasps would be safe to feed to a snapping turtle or would the toxins inside of the stingers pose a problem?

Wasps are not their preferred food choice but turtles are opportunistic predators. In the wild if they come across one they will eat it from time to time.

Yes,I'm aware....someone who has a few small turtles posed the question to me.He said he caught a ton of the wasps with a Shop Vac and thought to feed the dead ones to his turtles.

As long as the stingers are removed, go right ahead!
