OMG! that was a shock to see. It was probably an abscess that hardened, ripened and fell off. Hopefully this baby can recover and it grows back in.
My thoughts exactly. Since tortoises rely heavily on their sense of smell, I was also wonder how that would be affected long term. Feel so sorry for that keeper and the tort. :(

OMG! That really was a shock to see. I personally don't think his future is too bright. Notice that tortoises need to smell their food. I sure would try hard to give him a chance. I do wonder, however, why was he not taken to a Vet with a big growth over the nares months ago.
