Hello. I’m new to the forum. I just notice the underside of my Hermann (Poe) is pinkish. And I’ve seen a couple different things it could be and I am worried because I can’t find images of shell growth but she’s acting fine. I’ve had her since October and it took her a good month to start eating but ever since then she’s been doing great. Eating, going potty when I bathe her which is every other day. She peed on my yesterday. Walking around a lot when I take her out of her enclose ( which we are building her a table because what I was told to get was wrong). It didn’t look to pink this morning but would laying on a hot rock make it worse? She’s been hanging out under the heat lamp the past 2 days. Hot side is 90 and cool side is 78. At night it’s 68. Any help would be appreciated.

Her shell is really hard so when I press down nothing happens..... when I checked on her this morning it doesn’t look as bad. But it was like that yesterday didn’t look bad in the am but was a lot darker when I got home from work

It quite like yours. There’s white squiggles all over her shell that have spread over the last week.
