I have a baby map turtle and on about 1/5th of its shell it looks like as if it was peeling. I looked at pictures online and it doesnt look anything like shell rot though, because there is no discoloration. He is still eating and acting normal too. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas.

I took him out and gave him a little bit of a bath using a q-tip. Turns out it was just dried blood worms that got stuck on his back when he got out of the water :-P

well if it happens again dont worry because it could have also been shedding its scutes which means its growing.

How often are you feeding him dried worms?
