    Tortoise Exercising

    The white ring is growth and that’s a good thing. She doesn’t appear to be overweight based off your photos. Tweak her diet a bit so it’s more weed heavy then store bought foods. Tortoise supply has dried dandelion and other blends that are good to mix in too. If you can work on an outdoor...
