Red blotch in one area could be a sign of trauma, or if tort’s body was positioned in the way that this area was on the bottom, gravity causes blood pooling post mortem. If the red blotches are all over, then the baby tort may have had sepsis. I am no expert on tortoises, just general common sense medical stuff that would seem obvious to me. I am very sorry for you loss[emoji217]

Just had another look, I have noticed now there's like red all around his shell and going underneath so I am guessing it's only the decomposing of the shell or whatever rather than the cause of death. Thanks for your replies guys, still in a state of shock today about it all. Friday the 13th after all.

I am very sorry for your loss, I can tell you really cared about him, and this must be very difficult for you. Hopefully the good memories you have of him will help you get through this difficult time.
