Penny had a scraped a bit off her shell and it's pale now. Let me explain, Penny likes to climb and she was trying to climb and squeeze past a rock. She scraped the top of her shell and as a result had two spots (about half a centimetre each) which are now a cream colour rather than the colour of the rest of her shell. I've kept an eye on it and it's hard and not flaking or anything but I was wondering if this was normal or something I need to keep an eye on?

She's chipped little bits off her shell in the past but I haven't seen a scrape like this before.

Thanks

You could always bathe with betadine maybe just to be on the safe side?
