Hi everyone, i was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is a type of tortoise that has a bumped up shell but as it grows it smooths out??????
i know that sounds like a random question but my aunty has got herself a tort not long ago but i havent been to see her yet and i still dont know the name of tort yet and my mum went to see her and came bk with that info from her?????????????
thanks guys xxxx

I have to say, that I am no expert on torts by any means, but I know I have never heard of a tortoise like that. So does that mean you Aunty has a bumpy tortoise and was told it will get smoother as it grows??

Because I don't think that would be true.

The lumpy shell is caused by incorrect feeding - either diet or too much. You can't get rid of the bumps, but changing feeding will ensure it doesn't get worse

Thanks lin iv passed on all that info to my aunty, given her my tort lady's website etc, only tort i can find that has lumpy shell is an indian star tort and i dont think its one of those as they have a distinctive bumpy shell that is not ment to got flat!
i would guess she was just told a load of old twoddle!!
