Here’s a video of Dumbork scratching herself silly on the filter.
Turtles scratching their shells might mean that their scutes are coming off. Basking should always be encouraged at this point, either under the sun, or on the basking area complete with a UVB lamp and heat source.
Wheat germ pellets, blueberries, and sweet potato are some of the recommended food that encourage shedding. Do not lift up or pick the scutes — it is best if it comes off without any help.
More update next week!
Happy reading! 🙂
