Horsfield shell
Posted: 06/08/2016 by LauraS

Please help

The bottom of my 5 ish year old horsfields shell is going brown/red. She had some pyramiding when we got her about 18 months ago but this seems to have settled. She looks well, is active and eating etc. The brown bit feels hard like the rest of her shell.
Please help, is this shell rot?

It looks ok but It's a small pic, if in doubt take to a vet.
