Does my tortoises poop look normal? He goes to the toilet when I bathe him, and not in his enclosure. But it's always really soft. I have had him for four days. Feeding him a varied diet dandelion greens and flower, watercress, romaine lettuce, escarole and so on and a little Timothy hay for fibre. He has access to cuttlefish fish bone and the appropriate lighting. Will it harden up, as he's new but I read it should be hard but it's always soft. :/ thanks.

Looks fine to me. It's a formed turd. As long as it's formed. You don't want it rock solid, they could strain to much pushing it out. The water will make it look softer too.

It's perfect. Unless you get discoloration like red in their poop it's fine. Colors looks normal (greenish). The poop is supposed to be soft, it eventually gardens from being left out but once fresh its soft especially if exposed in water. :)
