Yes, thank you. I am learning from it in case I need to do this. I work with a rescue.
I’m hoping to do some more dremmling this weekend, I’ll post progress once I’ve done some more. Fingers crossed it goes well, poor thing she really hates it

Just a quick update. I haven’t filled any more of her beak. She has eaten 3 cuttle fish and been chomping on the lump chalk so I’m goi g to see if she can fill some down herself. So far I think it’s looking great. She is never interested in cuttle fish usually or the lump chalk and is eating with gusto! So I think the initial fill was a success.
The photo below is from today and I can see a massive improvement 8CBC33D1 BEB2 4A4C 9169 687C864C6407

Just a thought but I think it would be helpful for me and other people with tortoise beak issues. And that is if people with tortoises that have a healthy mouth would post pictures of the different species so that we can get an idea of what are are tortoise mouths should look like.
