Shelly sheds her skin ALL THE TIME. When is it too much?
Scute sheds seem to be normal...not excessive but she is 14 years old is she really still growing? Shell doesn't look weird and we keep proper lighting and basking. I tried to introduce different veggies... I don't know what really to do. Doesn't seem normal to shed skin so much...water temp 72-73 farenheit.

I think it depends the turtle, but my female RES is shedding a lot while there is hardly anything from my male. He's also not eating much this winter. Either way, I wouldn't worry too much about it.
