Beak deformation
Posted: 26/11/2013 by alibannani

Hello,
I have recently noticed that my little girl has a mis-shapen mouth. She doesn't have much of a beak (well worn with cuttlefish etc) but one side is flat and smooth and the other appears to have a piece broken off (see the photo attached). It hasn't affected her eating in anyway, she is perfectly healthy in all other ways but I was wondering if anyone knew what might have caused this and if it will grow back??
Thanks
Alex and Ifutu

Hello,
It should grow back. Keep an eye on it next year. I assume she is about to go into hibernation.
Regards,
Tom
