is my tortoise sick?

by Bethany

I have a Russian female tortoise. For about a month now she has been passing a white slime when she pees. Im not sure if this is normal or if she may be sick?

From your description, this is completely normal. Tortoises do this to keep as much liquid in as possible (helps in the wild).

I think there is nothing to worry about, just keep your tortoise hydrated.
