None of the turtles I've felt were scaly, their shell was smooth and kind of glossy. It might be a bit rough, especially if they have an injury that is healing, but other than that, not scaly. Unless they were real dirty and then it was grity, or muddy, but not scaly, like a fish or snake rubbed against their grain.
