soft patch on tortoise shell
I have a Horsefield tortoise who is approximately 3 years old. on the right side of his shell there is a tiny patch (smaller than a small pea) that is really soft to touch and looks a bit flaky. Should i be worried about this? he is the first tortoise i've ever had. I have had him 2 weeks and i bought him from a local pet shop. he was a present for my 30th birthday and i would be devastated if it was something serious. Can anyone offer advice on this? MANY THANKS!
