Turtle First Aid – Soft Shell Spots

Soft spots on turtle shell

My turtle has some soft spots on it’s shell

​Your turtle’s shell should be hard and solid, except for softshell turtles. You should not be able to push dents or find any soft patches. The most common cause of a soft shell is a lack of calcium or vitamin D3.

They can get calcium through their food, and vitamin D3 through sunlight or UVB rays. Be patient, this could take a very long time to heal.
