    Hiding a lot.

    Shell rot?

    Hi! So I’ve had Pearl for about a month, and this is my first tortoise. I kept red ear sliders years ago, but I’ve never had a land shell friend before her and she is my BFF. So, I’m not sure if this is normal looking on her bottom shell or if she has shell rot? It was never an issue in my...
