Hello , as turtles grow and shed a lot will get a darker color and the patters do change. With my turtles I see once in a while a shed with lighter color scutes here and there over my time in this hobby. Any photo's ?

Photo like litefoot mentioned would be helpful, but at this point it might just be algae.
