Morning all! Am new to this group so just wanted to introduce myself. I've had a Herman for 18 months and absolutely adore them! Such lovely lottle creatures! I noticed last night a couple of groove markings on his shell which seemed to be sensitive to the touch. I've attached a couple of photos. Do they look normal to this forum of experts? He has a balanced diet of hard food and fresh veg, but as I am a first timer I would love to hear from you guys!! Thanks, Jess

Welcome to the group :) Is your tortoise putting on a lot of weight? How old and heavy is it? Are the sensitive areas a lighter colour as in new growth, if so it sounds like excessive weight gain. If you are accessing the group by a laptop or tablet you should be able to attach a photo direct, but not sure from phones. Click on the photo symbol and add a photo from your collection ;)

Hi Jess welcome to the forum. :)

If you click on more reply options then attach files you can upload a photo, not sure if it works from a phone though. :)
