Thanks Fleur, nice one, yeah, the animal is probably growing and shedding the scutes.
It might have started with those from the front first, but it will eventually change the whole carapace.
I don't have photos with me now, but we see that from time to time and that's very evident with the urban turtles, they have lots of algae on the shell, and we see half mossy, half clear.
Thank you and have a nice Christmas, cheers, Bruno
