As stated before your turtle is shedding ! Changing words to another post since Oct 30th does not change the fact it's shedding !
If you offer a good habitat it will shed easy if not will be hard for it to shed properly !
You can ask all you want or believe what you want will not change the fact it's shedding .

Haha litefoot is a mighty experienced turtle keeper. Sometimes he gets a little cranky. Don't take it personally ;)

That said, it is best to follow up on the same thread if you are bringing up the same topic. People will be more helpful if your information and previous posts are clear.

If you're referring to that "spinal" ridge, it's normal.
