Hi, and that is in advance for your help. I am including pictures of my 10 yr olds's female Russian. I am going to include pics of the male, my son's to compare to give you an idea of what is going on. They are NOT in the same enclosure.

Male, in comparison:
Cheryl Hills on February 22 2018 you posted a reply to the question White rings around Russian Tortoises shell is it ok? Your response and the pictures posted by the original question asker helped me today on July 28 2021. My Hercules is growing. The rings around his shell are growth rings and not some strange unknown tortoise disease or rings from improper care. Thank you. I just wanted to let you know your kindness and knowledge are appreciated three years later.
