I just recently got a turtle. When i got him the guy said he was a red ear slider but he looks nothing like a red ear slider. He also has a piece of his belly that looks like its peeling off. Please HELP!!!!!!

for the peeling on the plastron it can be shedding(i can\'t see in the pic)..did ur turtle grow lately? if it look like a thin layer of a nail,it\'s shedding..don\'t worry it\'s completly normal...:)

what a cute baby! he\'s so lovely:)

it is probably a slider but there are many different kinds of sliders but definately it\'s not a RES at all..well, the good thing is that at least u know it\'s a slider and will know the basic care he needs..

good luck:)

it might be cause of ur pic but ur turtle seem to have more orange color then the other pic u post back...i\'m still confident about the belize slider...but i\'m no expert!! i\'m pretty sure the pattern on the plastron would be a good indication for is family...but anyhow it\'s look like a slider but it\'s for sure it is not a res...
