Hi all, just been looking at Clive and noticed lots of little marks all over his shell. Not sure if it’s anything to be concerned about or if it’s just due to a growth spurt. Any advice pls??

Looks good to me. Maybe a little dry. Humidity should be around 30-50% for an adult. Soaking in warm water will help.

If you do a 'search' using our search feature, and put in "white squiggly lines" you can read many posts about this subject. Bottom line is, nothing to worry about, and completely normal for healthy baby tortoises.
