I have 2 painted turtles, they are the same age. They are about 10 months old. One is growing at a faster pace than the other, the smaller one\'s shell is starting to curve upwards around the edges, does anyone know what could be causing this?
Thanks for any help.

Usually the females grow larger and have more of a dome shaped shell.

My paint grew like mad for the first 10 monthes and then just almost completely stopped. Mine is a male and his shell is also curving up around the edges.
Different genders grow at differnet paces.
