Hello everyone,
Yesterday i noticed these shell marks on my baby Russian. Im wondering if it means its a good thing or a bad thing. If not a bad thing, what is it?

Nobody seems to know the answer to this. Do a Forum 'search' for "White Squiggly Lines" and you'll see we've done a lot of talking about it.

Hi Yvonne, thank you so much for replying! I was actually wondering about the black lines that seem to be coming from the black patch scute thing.

LOL! Sorry. . . That's just his carapace pattern or design. Most baby Russians have them.
