So I am very new to the tortoise world and this is my little Russian named elphaba. Being that I'm new to this and I love her dearly I'm very afraid I'm going to do something wrong. I know the camera quality isn't great but does her shell look healthy? And any tips on how to keep her healthy and happy?

one tip to help her shell is to take an old toothbrush, and just scrub her shell lightly with no soap with the toothbrush. It will get off excess dirt and other stuff. They do have full feeling in their shells so try not to do it hard. :)
