    Is this normal. She's eating and drinking lovely. All temps and lighting are correct. Any suggestions?

    Reverse pyramiding is sometimes caused by living in a too dry enclosure.

    You can also moisten the substrate and keep it damp (not soaking wet). That will really help keep humidity up.

    Yes Tammy. More pictures and more information about the existing conditions is needed for us to help this tortoise to any extent.
