:I once found a full grown Fl Softshell turtle like that. Its a condition called Kyphoticism (or something like that). Just a turtle with a hunched back. Most turtles born that way stay healthy in captivity, and occasionally survive in the wild. If there is a health concern, its one that you can't fix.

Thanks for identifing it. That's exactly what it is! I'll read more about it. She'll be so releaved. Thanks again!
