Hey guys, most of you know I have baby snapping turtles. One of them recently developed a dent on top of his shell closer to his head than his butt. They swim around in their tank just like I have had them do before. Never seen one with a dent. If pictures are needed I can get one or try to! Is it something I have done? The one with the dent is noticably smaller than the other. They eat the same I bought expensive hatchling food so they woul have more nutrients. I don't think the dent hurts him I thinks it's more superficial but no idea where it came from or why? 🤔
