Red ear slider poops white balls?
My baby is 3 years old, about 9.5 inches. No new habitat or food changes. Her poops are usually quite large and green/black, but two days ago I found these white soft balls that were at the bottom of the tank. They are not stringy or moving, which leads me to believe this is not a parasite. They are very squishy and seem to have some sort of mucus around them. A friend told me he believes it’s an intestinal infection, and my boss believes it’s the start of her maturing. It is the weekend so I cannot bring her to a vet, and was wondering if anyone has dealt with this before, and what it could be? Thank you

The first eggs laid are pretty much always the smallest. If the turtle is not in distress, you have no need to take her to a vet.

I’d like to make it clear that these balls are around half the size I see eggs are online, I do not feel any eggs in her, and these balls are very soft. I think her tail has gotten thicker since I’ve last seen, but I don’t feel anything abnormal.

Sounds like turtle eggs.
