Hello,

You will need to provide close ups, so that the "white" is visible in the photos.

You state "it won't go away I've tried everything" - what have you tried ?

Did the shop explain their adult size ?

How are you keeping them, pls send pics of your setup.

It's rather stupid to seek help on the Forum & then not ansa a few simple questions. I emailed you directly 2 days ago.. Thus I can't help you with "white" which I can't see.


As for your "recommended" pet shop, they are highly irresponsible selling a species which can attain a metre in length & which has no place in this country.

Why has my tortoise scratched her back claws off ? To a point that she bled and has no back claws. My dad thought she needed her claws clipped but,when he tried to clip one it bled. So he left them. She has Never done this before and I have had her for 20 years. This summer I moved her to my parents garden, From mine. Because my son and daughters tortoises are from a different breed of tortoise. Felt it was for the best. Iím very confused. Can anyone shed some light?
