I've moved my tortoise indoors for the winter and she is in a greenhouse in my room. Every couple of days I would hear this sound that honestly sounded like a pregnant womens water breaking. Thats the only example I can think of to explain it. Every time I heard it, my tortoise would be somewhere hidden. But today she was on her "loft" so I could see her and she started to poop and I heard that sound. I saw alot of urine or stored water everywhere. I was wondering if this is normal? I have never seen her have thick white urate, the only thing I have ever seen is maybe a little white stuff in her water bowl and grit. So was she releasing urate and stored water. I was also wondering if this means shes well hydrated, because I've ready many times that it should be thick and white.
