    Hello guys, today i noticed something in both of Bento’s eye, it looks like its third eyelid. Is there anything i can do to ease it? Temps are 80-90 F and humidity level 50-80%. Substrate is topsoil. Thank you!

    Looks normal to me too. A little bit of the third eylid can be seen even in the eyes of a healthy tortoise. I would not worry.
