Hey, so I am pretty sure this is the starting stage of some fungus on my tortoise. Just wanted to be sure that it really is before I treat it. I lovered the temps for my torts to get them ready for going outside, but the weather just wasn't getting better this year so it took a few more weeks than I thought. That's where it comes from I think. IMG_20210613_132040.jpg

Treat it with over the counter antifungal cream. If it is then that should take care of it.
I can't really tell as when I blow the pic up its blurry.

Shell rot or fungus happens when a tortoise sits in dirty, wet substrate, pee or poop. . . that means it happens on the plastron (bottom shell), not the carapace (top shell).
