Mild pyramiding.

Adding humidity, a humid hide and spraying the shell several times a day will make the new growth less pyramided.

Pyramiding is caused by growth in conditions that are too dry.

I think shes about 8yrs old & ive had her for about 3yrs.. She was in pretty bad condition when i first took her in, she had never had any UV or appropriate heat lamp or food for that matter.
