Is this mouth rot.. I don't know if you can see in the picture. . He had just been eating but he has some of the symptoms. Well he did. He was yawning a lot. I don't think it was yawning though. He was rubbing one side of his face against his legs and he was blowing bubbles out of his nose. I haven't seen this happen for a couple of days but maybe he is doing it I have just been missing it. It started after he ate that deadly nightshade berry I told you about. The vet said he was fine but they didn't even specialise in tortoises. It was really annoying. I kept telling them he was ill. Maybe I am wrong. He is still eating and he seems ok. But he has been staying in one corner recently but that was early this morning and yesterday so he could have just been sleeping. Please help. I thought that this berry would cause problems and it has. We don't have a plant in our garden but I don't know where they are coming from. I will describe it for you. His tongue IS pink but it seems to have a yellowish hue to it. He has little green bits in it. I think this is from him eating though. Whenever he is in the bath he sticks his head under and blows bubbles. He didn't do this before the berry.
