have a russian tort

by alex

its shell is not soft but the sections look like there seperating. the lines are light colored between the sections. it is still very active and has a healthy appetite. i have had it about 2months and told it is less than a year old.it is getting the proper lighting and diet. is this normal shell change for it?

If the light area is a normal shape like the rest of the shell, then it's just growth, but if there are large dips or bumps where the lighter color is, then there might be a deficiency. Do you have a picture?
