i have a red eared slider and it looks like his skin <not on his shell> is flakeing off or shedding, is this normal or is he sick? also his belly isn\'t as yellow as it was, he is very active and swims all the time, he also still has a big appetite. his eyes are still clear skin is still right and his shell is still a deep green. i take good care of him changeing his water almost every day cleaning out his aquarium atleast once a week. i love my turtle! does anyone know whats going on?

He is most likely shedding. Mine just finished doing that as well. If they take a growth spurt then they will shed. As long as the skin looks healthy there should be no problem.
