If it\'s peeling, then it\'s shedding. Shedding skin looks a little lighter than the normal skin.

Shedding of the skin and/or scutes is a sign of growth. Shedding skin, is white/translucent and kind of hangs in strings. You notice it in the water, but not really when the turtle is out of the water. The new skin underneath should look normal--no redness, rawness or other abnormalities.
