Is this baby eating?? If not do the soaking and dropper..it can't hurt to try. My little 1 with bumps has all kinds of things wrong but all the things I've been doing have kept her kicking and more energetic over the past 2 months. My other baby with bumps is seemingly completely normal and actually gaining weight. The best thing we can do until we get more answers is keep doing what we are doing and do all the extras. If you don't give up, they won't either!❤

Yes the tortoise has been eating but the sleeping is scaring me a lot because he wouldn’t sleep as much as he is sleeping now but thank you very much

My little Cruz 4 months old 44 oz has these ugly yellow bumps that came out of no where. Yes I did the carrot juice soak 3 days as recommended, she is not eating much but seams to have energy to walk an walk... She goes to the vet tomorrow, but I understand that sakatas with this bacteria don't survive 🤮

Besides the multiplesoakings, I bumped u I my little ones temp to 95 consistently and I got her baytril injections every day for a week and she's now much more active instead of sleeping all day long

And I am so so sorry about the little one you lost I lost one 2 months ago and its pretty devastating🥺 prayers and love❤

Hatchlings should not be in outdoor enclosures. They need closed chambers.

I understand. Hatchling failure is so heartbreaking because you did nothing to make it happen, and nothing you do will make it better.

We're working hard to try to make sure the yellow bump illness is not the same way.

No because I'm not home... It's a huge flower pot with grass and flowers, had a soaking bath and a flat rock, we use dirt and the hay stuff from Amazon as her bedding, she has abhalf wood shade spot with moss wet down for humidity that she lives to burrow in, she is very safe she has a chicken wire fence fir protection
