    Tortoise Shell Healthy?

    Hey, all. Been taking care of my tortoise for a year now. Was wondering if you could let me know if Chaurli’s shell is healthy or anything? I’d like to get some feedback on this. Notable spots include that small chip at the left side of his shell. I’m hoping it’s not early signs of shell rot...

    My dad gave my russian a piece of pineapple earlier today (I wasn't around otherwise it wouldn't happen). I know some fruits are ok as a rare treat but I can't find anything on pineapple. Will my tort be ok? Do you think this requires a trip to the vet or is there anything I can give him to help?
