I have a horrible feeling that i have lost btoh of mine with the same issue. I checked on them earlier today to find the same thing. I had them out of the fridge for a couple of hours now and its not looking good.

Hi
These tortoises need to see a specialist tortoise vet urgently. In the meantime, bath the area's with betadine and keep them in a warm clean seperate area from each other, how many other tortoises have you got in the fridge? Please tell us what the vet said. Hope everything goes well
