:I'm very happy to see a painted turtle forum!

:I have a 2" painted turtle that came from the wild. I've had him for several months and he seems to be doing great.

:His shell is 'turned up' at the edges in back instead of the normal dome shape. Is this a sign of anything or something to be concerned about?

=========

Typically it is due to a diet too high in protein, but since you you found it that way, offhand I would not worry overly much about it. It won't affect it's health in the long run and there is a slight possibility that the shell will correct itself as it grows larger.
