I have a turtle and she is scared to swim. I tried to slowly add more and more water to her tank but she panics. She doesn\'t stick her head under the water if her feet are not on the ground. Any tips on helping me teach her how to swim? Two more things, my turtle\'s shell and skin peel every now and then. Is that ok? And her shell is black now, but she is very clean. What\'s the deal? Somebody Please help me!!!

What kind of turtle is it? And I think she just needs to get used to it. I doubt turtles can be hydrophobic, it\'s against their nature.

As for the peeling its ok. Turtles shed just like any other reptile. Maybe the the black is just the color her shell is going to be. Turtles change colors, from when there a hatchling, to what there shell color is supposed to be. I wouldn\'t worry about that.
