    Runny Poop

    Kona is suddenly having runny poop. She has had it before but that was because of my limited knowledge before joining the forum (I had fed her a lot of fruit).

    I have been giving Kona spring mix as a substitute for grass and weeds during the winter. She has stopped eating anything green that I give her. She won't eat the grass I gave her recently either. She just picks off the food I put on top (which is usually pepper, carrots, mazuri, chicken or...

    shell rot?

    I have had Kona for a month now and have been noticing that there is something on her marginal scutes. She doesn’t have it anywhere else on her shell. The humidity in her enclosure is around 80-95% at all times. The temperature is at around 80-85 degrees F. Do you think this could be shell rot?
