Hi, I've just noticed white tissues on my tortoise's legs and tail today. He came to my garden 2 weeks ago. These spots gives difficulty him walking. He has good appetite. I don't know if this situation is dangerous for him and for the other tortoise in the garden or for my health? Please help me, if you know anything about this illness? What is this?

I’m not sure what I’m looking at... but I think your tortoise has Ticks look at the last picture it’s big.
I think you're right ? one of my neighbours also comfirmed it's tick. And she will remove them from Pluto's skin. I'm happy now that Pluto fell good again.? Thank you very much indeed for your quick reply, have a good week. ????
