Posted: 22/04/2011 by adie.k

hi all. we have a two year old hermman. over the last month, we have noticed a lighter coloured ring developing on his shell. we think that it is him growing but any advice would be gratefully received.

Hi Adie
Any chance you can post a photo?

Hi Adie, yes it does sound like a growth ring, be sure to not overfeed, slow growth is best.  And to only feed weeds/plants from the garden.

As Jane has mentioned a photo would confirm this. Regards Vivienne
