I\'ve noticed that my Red-eared slider\'s skin is pinkish near his neck area, legs, and tail. He refuses to eat his pellets for the past 6 months since i switched him to a bigger tank. He only eats fish and some chicken. My turtle is about 9 yrs old and has a heat lamp for him to bask. The temperature of the tank is always normal. In the winter he would stray away from his pellats but not for 6 months. I\'m afraid his skin is dicouloring cuz of the lack of vitamins from his pellets. Help!!!

Is your turtle shedding its skin at all? When my turtle, sheds his skin, sometimes he has pinkish skin, not anymore tho. I believe there are other posts on this message board regarding this topic, you might want to look around. I would check the temperature, make sure its not too warm. Hope it gets well soon~
