I have a female red-footed tortoise, who is fourteen years old. Lately she has been scraping her shell up against a piece of driftwood she's had in her cage for years. There are no problems with taking care of her, she gets food like spinach and strawberries, and she has a small pool to cool off in or drink from (regularly cleaned). So I guess my question is, do tortoises get itchy?
