My turtle\'s shell, is like peeling or shedding? Maybe thats what it looks like when its a cracked shell, I\'m not sure. It was like this when I got him, it looks like I could just peel the covering off of his shell, kind of like dead skin - which i definitely wouldn\'t. just trying to describe it to you. Anyways, I have a baby red-ear slider if that helps. Please help!

Turtles do shed off scutes. As long as your turlte doesnt shed too much, and doesnt reach the bone (its white) then you should be fine. Some pics would help to see what is rong if it is not shedding. good luck

In little spots over his shell, its kind of white, like as if its not attached to the shell. I haven\'t seen anything fall off or peel off, so im praying this is normal and hes not sick. I\'ll try to take pictures and post them as soon as possible.
