My two years old Red Foot is starting to marble in the center of its belly..is where it normally starts? BTW I am sure it is NOT shell rot.

If you post a picture we can tell you. I'm not really familiar with the RF tortoises, but I'm thinking the marbling starts on the carapace.

Here's some pics...there's no evidence of marbling on top, and this really doesn't look like shell rot to me.
