Your Painted turtle might be fine. If it is missing the nail and skin then I would see a vet; if its just the nail he is probley ok.

who is this goof telling you that you shouldnt paint your turtle??

I have a southern Painted myself!

firstly turtle shouldnt be painted as it also takes in air from its skin. it is missing its body part, its really bad. how if u loose ur finger. consult a vet so that ur turtle can get some treatement and can be fine even wutghout a claw.

A painted turtle is not a turtle with paint on it. It is a breed of turtle.

If it is injured, it should definitely see a vet.

Keep it slow and steady.
