Have Reptile Veterinary Questions? Ask a Reptile Expert.
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and Reptile Rescue. Since you are dealing with a parasite a Herp Vet visit is needed. It may be one of 3 parasites. Round worm, Pin worm or tape worms. It is important to take the worm an a stool sample into the Herp Vet for analysis. I would be sure if handling anything pertaining to the turtles to wash your hands well as some parasites like Pin worms can be gotten by the handlers. If you do not have a Herp Vet please let me know and I can locate some for you with a State.
