    Is this shell rot?

    Hey Tom, I’m not sure the original pic from yesterday showed correctly what I was trying to describe. Can you please take a look? I know you’re not a vet lol, but you seem very knowledgeable in all things tortoise and this just doesn’t look normal to me. The shell looks like it is tilting upward...

    Is this shell rot?

    Thank goodness!! I was so worried that his shell was getting dried out. Yeah he has a hide in his indoor enclosure and that side is always kept cooler. His outdoor enclosure has a buried pot, sun shade, and I keep an umbrella over that side of the enclosure lol. Ill keep soaking him 2-3 times a...

    Is this shell rot?

    Darwin’s shell is starting to look a little rough. I soak him 2-3 times a week (what I read causes shell rot is shell is too dry) and I’m concerned because his shell looks like it’s getting kinda cracks in it if that makes sense? His indoor enclosure has the UVB bulb and temp underneath is...

    Should I keep Darwin outside?

    Not sure which, but they also originally told me he was a female and we paid $30 extra because of it :rolleyes: I brought him to the vet the week we bought him because he had runny poop the day we brought him home. He's being treated for nematode parasites though so luckily the meds work and he...

    Should I keep Darwin outside?

    Thank you!! That was a great read and you gave LOTS of great advice. So my tortoise (at least what the store told me) is around 2 years old. He's about 5 1/2 inches. What age/length would you consider a tortoise to be an adult? Is mine still a baby?
