Hey Everyone!

I am a new turtle owner - I bought a turtle on Canal Street in NYC - A RES i believe. He just recently lost that baby tooth and I believe (fingers crossed) he is starting to eat (I\'m trying to watch closely) My problem is that we noticed today he seems to be losing skin. It is around his neck some and mostly his legs. Is this normal?? Do turtles shed a layer?? If not what am I doing wrong? Any advice appreciated. Thanks

Welcome to this message board. It\'s all good and normal for turtles to shed a little skin. Enjoy your new friend. NEVER take advice from the one calling himself TYGERXG2. Keeping it safe.

Is this \"skin\" that you are seeing cotton like in appearance? If so, this could be a fungus that you are seeing and not actually the skin.
