View attachment 327450 I am new at this, and my Russian just pooped, and this came out. Is this normal?
Thank you!!!
Yes, that is what is known as "urates". Russian and some other tortoise species pass them regularly. Normal urates are about the consistency of toothpaste. Yours appear to be fine at this time.

The tortoise should be kept well-hydrated so that the urates do not harden inside the tortoise and become a stone which the tortoise cannot excrete.
