Hey there! Me again. Just wanted your guys opinions as a worried turtle dad. I am a newer turtle owner, so let me know- does my turtle look unhealthy or is he just shedding? He is less than a year old if that influences any thoughts. Thanks!

I have mud and musk turtles, so I haven’t had any experience with turtles like yours.
Hopefully more knowledgeable people will be along soon!

Looks just like new growth and scutes about to shed to me. See what the others say though. I was told recently to add a pellet to the diet containing wheat germ (like Koi food) food and this will help shed scutes.
