Scratching Schell X no Anus Problem
by: Why would you wanna know?

I just came here to know something, not anything to advise about tortoise anus.

I have a male russian tortoise and I was wondering, why does he move around very fast when I scratch his shell rapidly? Is this some type of pleasure? or is it bad?

Why would you put your finger in any animal's anus? If you are not a vet, please, please, please don't even think about doing this. You will introduce bacteria and may very well damage internal organs.
