Dirt and my turtle

by Jordan

I just got my turtle and I noticed by it's legs in the shell it has a lot of built up dirt and bedding. Is it normal or healthy for this to be there? I don't think the person I for it from took very food care of her:/ what do I do??

I would rinse it under a warm faucet. If it is rotten food it may need to come out or it may rot and that can't be healthy.
