I have a pet painted turtle, and just recently I\'ve noticed some changes in his shell. He\'s getting two little humps, one at the front of his shell near his head, and another at the back of his shell near his tail. The bumps are along the ridge in his shell (i.e. right down the center, not on the sides). I feed him Nutrafin gammarus pellets, about 10-12 a day. He\'s only about 4 inches long, but I\'m not sure of his age. Anyone have any ideas what the problem might be? The bumps don\'t really look all that abnormal, but it is a change that I have noticed recently. Thanks for listening!

How big are the bumps? I\'ve noticed very tiny bumps on my turtles spinal ridge as well they both have them so I assumed it was normal.
