You mean the skin? Yes, that's perfectly normal-looking desert tortoise skin.

Yes I mean the skin.

Some of his legs are yellow looking the rest is darker brown as you can see in the pic.

I just want to make sure he has no health issues.

Thanks for your help as always @Yvonne G

He actually looks, I know, looks can be deceiving, very healthy. DT are prone to respritory infections, not to scare you, but just watch for him blowing nose bubbles. Based on your other posts, you are soaking him, which is very important for their health. Shell and eyes look good, plus seems to be very active. I wouldn't worry too much. You are doing your research and asking the questions. Keep up the good work.
