Please help me out!
I'm a new turtle owner and I own 3 red eared sliders who are now 3 months old.

I noticed they have developed brown spots on their bellies and I'm not really sure what it is. They have regular exposure to sunlight (but not a basking UV lamp) and are fed pellets 3 times a day. There is no change in their behavior or eating patterns.

Any help as to what this could be would be really appreciated as I have no exposure to a Herp Vet.

Is this because they do not have exposure to UV Rays? I bought a lamp today so...Should I be worried?

Here are pictures of their bellies:

We can't see the pictures. Here's a pic of the bottom of my baby's shell.
