Restless Behaviour

by Lee

Hello fellow tortoise lovers!

I have a beautiful 6yr old male hermanns tortoise. Quite suddenly he has begun to demonstrate periods of compulsive "scratching" using his front legs in any available corner. When calmed down and stopped he remains calm for a short period then returns to another corner and does axactly the same over and over again.
The problem is becoming more worrying as he has scratched so vigorously he has worn the skin on both sides of his neck and drawn some blood.
Please can anyone help???
