My turtle discharged an unusual, clear and slimy consistency approx. 2 inches long, 1 mm or less in width, odorless. Would anyone know what this could be? Is this something normal because it\'s growing? Should I be concern? If anyone can give me any information I would be most grateful. Thanks in advance to all. Best regards, Abby

The only thing I can think of (and this is just a guess) is urates in the urine. I don\'t know much about this topic, just that it\'s linked to protein in the diet and hydration. It would be good if you did some further research on the subject, and if in doubt, or if your turtle displays other symptoms, take her to the vet.
