Hi guys, was giving my young Russian tortoise a bath today and noticed a bit of muck on his plastron, I gently washed it off and noticed he has two little dents on each side and it doesn’t look right to me. Any suggestions of what it might be?

It probably has to do with where the umbilical was attached. It will smooth out as he grows.
