I have noticed some red marks on my little hatchling Teabag.

First was one on her neck that was believed to be caused by her shell...



But today I noticed one on her leg that can't be from her shell, there is also a red mark on the shell next to it (I hope you can see it but she just wouldn't stay still!!)



Also a red mark on the side of her shell...



Any idea what is causing this??
Anything I can do?
She is kept on coco coir which I keep damp and bathed everyday...

Here is the whole of her...

I have no Idea what it could be, but it looks serious. IMO I'd go to a reptile vet to get your tortoise checked out.
Maybe someone with experience will post soon.

Good luck.

Yeah I am rather concerned, and we do have a good reptile vet on the other side of town...

I should add she is still active and eating fine
