I am new to tortoise keeping, and I got my first one about a month ago. My other half thinks he has seen a change in his shell colour since we have had him. I have attached a picture to see what other people think of the colour, its mainly the browny red parts that we were worried about?
Hopefully someone can tell me more about this! :)

Shell colour does change as tortoises get older. They don't maintain their pristine newly hatched colours for life. It is natural wear and tear. The shell colour matures and usually gets darker.

Yours looks just fine to me.
