My one turtle in now pooping out white stringy poop. I know that sounds really nasty but I was just wondering if it is normal. I just feed them turtle pellets and nothing else. The thing that is really nasty is the smaller turtle is now going over and trying to eat it out of his butt. YUCK!!! Any ideas of what is wrong with him, he is a happy little fello. Thanks...

I think your Subject must have baffled everyone! I\'ve seen this once with my turtle, but it was only the one time, so I haven\'t really worried about it. I\'d be interested to hear what it is too. Sorry, I\'m no help.

How old/big is your turtle? It\'s not worms? If not, it possibly could be urates (concentrated uric acid and salts). The pellets are OK as a staple, but it would be good to vary your turtle\'s diet more (try some plant matter). If it continues, I would take him to a vet.
