My desert tortoise is about a year old and I noticed some light spots I don't previously recall being there.

Is this a) normal?

If not, could it be caused by a scrape? Or what else might be the cause?

It's acting normal, doesn't care if I touch those spots, etc. Just wanted to make sure I'm being mindful 20191119_145438.jpg 20191119_145501.jpg 20191119_145917.jpg

It's hard to tell if it's under the shell and showing through or if it on the shell, like a scrape. I don't know what it is, but if it really worries you, I'd find a GOOD tortoise vet and get his opinion. But my GUESS is that it's probably nothing.
