Hi.
I haven't posted here in years. But one of my turtles has some spots on her skin that has me concerned.
For informational purposes.
I've had her for 8 years.
She's 10 plus years old.
She is a RES.
Kept indoors for the first 4 years. Moved outside into a substantial pond for the last 4 years. Wintered outside the last 3.

I've pulled them out to inspect them as the weather is warming up and noticed some issues with her hind end which to me looks like it could be frostbite. But I dont know.
She is acting well.
Came to me when I called her. Basking in the day. Swimming normally and given she's just coming out of hibranation seems healthy with exception of these spots on her skin.
What does it look like to you? How would you proceed with her?
