Hello everyone.
I have two greek tortoise ladies: Malina and Aurora. They are about 2 years old and they are sisters.
I feed them about 4 times a week switching between dry vegetables and some pills you put in water so they are getting softened, then I sprinkle that with vitamins and fiber. They seem healthy but Malina is starting to getting pyramid shell I think and when I examined Auroras shell closely it looks a little like there are smalls worms inside her shell :-(

Can anyone please tell me if they are okay?

Thanks a lot.

They are both beautiful, but Aurora!!! Omg!!!! Absolutely gorgeous coloring and pattern! If you worry about pyramiding just bump up the humidity in her enclosure, make sure her lamps are not too close to her shell, bath her often and moisturize shell with coconut oil. Generally I think some torts just grow little bumpier than others. I wouldn't lose my sleep over it. Both of your torts are beautiful!!!

Also, the "small worms" are noting to worry about. They are simply growth lines that many tortoises have when they are growing.
