Is my horsefield ok?

by Steve

Ive had my 2yr old horsefield for nearly a month now and the other day i noticed the white line around his shell has become wider and when i touched it he jumped and hissed. Is his shell growing or is this not normal? he seems healthy and happy otherwise. Thanks for any help.

Growth ring

That sounds to me like a normal growth ring. My horsefield tortoise did the same thing when she was getting a new growth ring. I think the rings are just sensitive at first.
