"My son saved our snapping turtle from certain death about 4 years. He's grown quite a bit and does well with our sliders. He's been a wonderful pet, and loves to be played with. Unfortunately our agressive soft-shell tried to disembowel it. It seems to have pulled a part of it's innards out through his anus. Sounds weird, I know. It started out pretty gross and I tried, unsuccessfully, to shove it, gently, back in. He seemed uncomfortable when I tried so I stopped. I've separated him from the rest of the turtles and he seems active, but can't seem to fix his issue. He seems to poop through the area that is pulled out. It's the weirdest thing ever. I've been keeping him in a very clean environment to prevent infection. Any ideas or experience with this issue from anyone out there?"
