Gold is golden, its a healthy shell. no worries
My Turtle's Shell Has Been Having These Weird Spots Of Discoloration. They Are Patchy, Almost A Whitish Gold Color. It Doesnt Look Normal. I Also Noticed That A Bit Of His Yellow Stomach Seems To Be Scraping Away. Why?
Turtles can have infections--fungal or bacterial--that attack the shell. This may be the cause of discoloration. Proper nutrition is also important for turtles and can have an impact on shell health. Trauma is also a possibility. It would be best to have this turtle examined by a veterinarian. Problems with the shell can become serious and generally take a long time to heal.
What are the gold spots on my slider turtles shell? And you can only see them in the light in his tank.
