health questions
Posted: 14/08/2016 by gracebrenton2002

Hello,


I have a baby Hermann's tortoise that is coming up to two months now, and whilst I was giving him his bath the other day I noticed a little white patch on his chin. I'm not sure what it was but it almost seemed as if some of his scales had come off? I've never noticed it before so I'm sure it's something new. I've had Alfie for about a month and he's only done about 3 or 4 poos, and hasn't weed at all when I've been bathing him. I'm not sure why this is as I've been feeding him plenty, and he does seem to be drinking. He also hasn't gained any weight. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Alfie is my first tortoise so I'm still learning. 

Thank you

I tried to attach a photo of the white thing but I'm not sure if it worked!

Hello,

Try again to load the pics, as it's difficult to comment without seeing it.

I tried to copy & paste the picture - not sure if it worked? Also sorry if the pictures are a bit blurry I couldn't get the camera to focus!

Ask a knowledgable friend to do it for you.

Nope.  Try again. You will see when they appear.
