My Hermann tortoise hasn't pooed in the past week but yesterday I was watching him and he was trying to poo but something jelly like was coming out it was purple/red colour and it kept coming out but he couldn't let it go so it went back in. I've just bathed him and when I was drying him he pooed and normal poo came out but the jelly like thing was trying to come out again aswell. Does anyone know what it could be? Sorry for the graphic info x
