Hi me again! i was bathing my tortoise today when I noticed a black dot in her neck. I’ve tried to get a photo of th8s but she keeps running at the camera, is there any way yo7 know what it is by the description? I’ve heard of outdoor tortoise getting Ticks and stuff but Charlie is indoor. Please help me I am really worried. Thanks- Charlie

Is it raised or flat?
It could just be skin colouring but a picture is really needed
Maybe try getting a photo by balancing her on a tin /pot (as you do for weighing), that way legs and head will be out but she can't go anywhere. (do that in enclosure or at floor level so you can be sure there's no big drops).
