    My painted turtle seems to have something like dead skin near its neck. Its almost as if the skin was peeling off. Is this molting, or should i get worried?

    P.T.

    ps: will try to get pics, digicam out of batteries and dad is lazy to get them.

    I wouldnt worry to much about that. I read where they do this I think it might be Moulting.. But I dont know if that is what it is called in turtles or not. I will see if I can find that link and post it here for you..I hope I still have it.
