Hello. This is my first time posting here. I have two RES turtles. The other night I noticed a white ribbon like thing wrapped around one of my turtles stool. It reminded me of the tapeworms my dog once had.
How can I verify that it was a worm. I only noticed them twice before, i thought it might have been the silicon from the tank. They don\'t move or swim. My turtle actually tried to eat it, and it\'s poop.
I am really concerned they are becoming sick. I know i will have to visit the vet soon, but is there anything I can do in the mean time ?

Turtles do eat their own feces I have heard, but the worm thing I have no idea what it may be.
