Seems to be Pyramiding.
(Not to much)
This is what i thought. Do you know what i can do to reverse this, or stop it getting worse?
Shes 2 years old. I give her a warm bath daily.
I feed her weeds and mixture of lambs lettuce with calci dust and nutrobal.
She loves her cuttlebone and she has suitable bedding etc.
Any advice would be great.
Thanks

You can’t Reverse it, but can prevent it from getting worse. The substrate should be coco coir.
Pyramiding happens when a tortoise is kept dry (low humidity) so you want to increase the humidity, but as I said your tortoise nearly has it.

Hi there yes i just changed a few months ago coco coir. As what i had been advised to use before i think was to dry.
Ok thanks very much for advice.
Have a good day
