Hey.
We’ve had this little girl for a couple months now. She came from a home where they did not know how to care for tortoises. I’ve done all my research, feed her adequately, she’s got a heat lamp, goes outside twice a week and gets soaked. Does her shell look okay? It’s not completely round but I believe she’s about 4/5 years old and may still be growing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m hoping it’s nothing

She's showing pretty nice new growth. The tortoise looks good to me. Have you read our care sheet?

Oh thank you so much!! I didn’t know much about tortoises and we rescued her from a family friend in a rush to get her into a better home. I have looked at some care guides but I will give yours a read! So so relieved to hear it’s nothing bad, absolutely love her and would hate for something to be wrong with her shell!
