    Tortoise back leg problems-need help

    Help! Why is my tortoise walking like this?

    Mostly grass she grazes in the yard. I also give her Romaine lettuce, green leaf lettuce, and a mixture of tomatoes, cabbage, watermelon and strawberries. I also got her the reptile dried veggies and insects I give once a week or so.
