I have 3 month old red eared slider, I observed him yesterday, if we gently press his shell, it's getting pressed, his shell became soft, it's clearly visible and we can see with the naked eye that shell goes down when we press him.

Please help me, I am worried about my baby red eared slider.

    Good that you care about the health of your turtle! There are many reasons for the shell to get soft (food, light, waters quality, infection). Because of that we need more information to eliminate that ones, that your settings avoid successful. Sep 10, 2019 at 9:54
