Tort twirling around
Posted: 24/02/2010 by didge

Hi, i don't know if i should be worrying or not, (but i am) my tortoise is 2 and we have had her since christmas. I noticed last night that when she was roaming around she kept going round in circles. Have had her out on carpet this evening and she is still doing it. I dont have a tortoise vet anywhere near us. She is fine in all other respects, any advice would be welcome.

Thanks. Teresa.

Hi Teresa,  I really think your tort should see a vet just to check all is ok, whereabouts are you? We can see if we can locate a vet close to you

Hi, VivienneClick and drag me down to the editor

We live just on the border between Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. I have tried all the vets near us and none have any experience with tortoises. Any help would be great.

 Thanks, Teresa.
