I have a Red Ear Slider and she\'s still a baby. I know that a little bit of shedding can be normal but she is shedding so much that the top of the water is covered with a flim of her shedded skin. she has been shedding for about two weeks now and I thought she would eventually stop but she hasn\'t yet and continues to shed in excessive amounts. why is this happening and what can i do to stop this? thanks.

It could be a problem with the water quality or temperature. You also could be feeding the turtle too much or giving it too much protein, which could cause it to grow too fast. Check out this link for info: http://www.turtlepuddle.org/health/skin.html
