I have a 4 month old Sulcata tortoise, one of his eyelids seem to be a tad bit swollen and when he blinks I can see blood in the corner of his eye but only when he blinks. I gave him some turtle eye drops so I’m seeing if the swelling goes down. Other than that he seems totally healthy. What could cause it especially with the blood in the corner only when he blinks?

Greetings. Your question just has me thinking of all kinds of reasons/questions. So, what kind of substrate, how often do you soak your tort, whats the humidity, what kind of heating & what kind of lighting? Size of enclosure?

Soooo, lots of possibilities could possibly cause something.

See if you can upload a few pictures of your tortoise.

In the meantime, give a read through this pretty comprehensive careguide - ➡️ https://www.tortoiseforum.org/threa...se-a-sulcata-leopard-or-star-tortoise.181497/
