Leopard Tortoise
Posted: 25/03/2011 by kimi


I live in South Africa and have a Leopard Tortoise.  I just went out to feed her and it looks like she has her intestines coming out her bottom.  She is walking and eating.

Hi andClick and drag me down to the editor , are the 'insides' still out?  If they are and will not go back in, then you must take the tortoise to a specialist tortoise vet, as it may have a prolapse that needs putting back inside.

If it is only 'flashing' occasionally and the organs go back inside, it could be that you have a male tortoise that is 'flashing' his penis.

Perhaps if you could take a photo we may be able to tell. Please let us know how you get on, regards Vivienne
