My ten yr old female russian tortoise's shell seems to be getting a redish on parts of her shell and red lines are around some of the squares. She seems ok...

What could this be???

This sounds like septicemia. Sorry, I don't know for sure how to spell that. It's a blood infection. You will want medication from the vet. Otherwise your pet is not liekly to live. Sorry for the bad news.
