Hi and welcome Tiera. Sorry, I don't know what type of turtle you have. I highly suspect that your turtle is aquatic and his feet are normal for these types. Someone will chime in soon.

Tiera, I sent off some of your post to start a new thread in the water turtle section. Hopefully somebody who knows about this type of situation can help. I keep some adult RES, but don't know why but it sounds like your turtle's feet are dying. :(

Though I am new here in this forum since I got a new tortoise, I have had my red eared slider for 3+ years. Yours looks like a little little one. They need a minimum 20 long tank(for baby stage, mine is in a 55 g at age 5, which is getting small) filled 3/4s of water and a filter rated for 3 times the tank size you choose to keep water clean. This can cause issues, since water dirties very fast. Also, make sure it has a completely dry basking dock with the UVB light( a must) and heat lamp over it. I am part of another forum specifically for red eared sliders, they can help better than me though on health problems.
Your little one is such a cutie!

Welcome! Sorry about your baby. I wish I could help. I have a RES and a yellow belly but they're still tiny. My aquatics led to my tortoise/turtle obsession.
Do you have a heater in your tank? They need warm water, UVB, and a basking spot. Filters for the water is also a must. I hope someone with more knowledge will see this and help. Good luck!
