One of my tortoises underplate (bottom part of the shell)that grows under his neck - has grown higher than I think it should be - he has to move his head to the side to eat - how do I handle this - it does not seem to bother him and he eats and drinks OK - I'm just a worrier, it is an african spur thighed
