i just noticed my turtle has a cut on his lower jaw. i don't know how it happened. im guessing the other female turtle must have bit him. should i just leave it alone or should i treat it?

Cut on a turtles face
by: Anonymous

What would you do if the cut were on your face? I would handle this in the same way. In any case, keep a close eye on it. Infections can spread quickly. The problem with a turtle is htat internal infecions are enclosed inside that shell they wear wherever they go. That can make diagnosing and treating internal infections extra hard.
