My brother got a turtle from Murtle Beach in a petshop. When we got him we were amazed by how pretty the bottom of his shell looked. Its been about 6 months since we got him and now we\'ve noticed the bottom of his shell has discolored into a yellow orange color. What is this? We are very concerned with this and we cannot find any information over the internet on this problem. Should we take him to a veterinarian....Please respond to this question at [email protected]! PLEASE HELP!

Well first of all we will need a little more information. What type of turtle do you have? Color changes are normal and depending on the type of turtle you may not have a problem at all.Does he have a good basic setup as far as heater& basking area? What type of substrate do you have? Is there any sharp rocks or decorations that he could be scrapping himself on?
Also are you able to post pictures? That can help a great deal.
Hope to hear from you soon.
