- Hello! I am trying to find out what kind of parasite is on my turtle.
They are tiny red dots that appear to be eggs of some type. There were
many of them 2days ago, now after a heavy rain there are only a few
left. There are no signs that they entered the turtle and are not on
the surface of the skin. The turtle is kept outdoors, so I deal with
parasites on a regular basis, but not these. Any help would be
appreciated. Thank you.-----Multisnake
p.s. I know it is possible that they entered the skin, and I suspect
that I will know if they did when they begin to grow.
