Shell rot is caused by a fungus much like athletes foot. Some Tortoise species are more prone to it. I would say a damp dirty enclosure would be why it would thrive. A damp clean environment with a proper UV exposure should prevent its ability to grow. Treating the shell rot on the shell with athletes foot cream will stop the growth of the fungus.Hi
Can I please get some advise on shell rot?
Cause of shell rot, prevention and treatment.
Many thanks in advance
