I have a 3 year old Herman tortoise ,occasionally it looks like the whole of his/her insides come out. They go back in and he carries on fine he doesn't come across as unwell. Is this anything anyone has seen or heard of before.When his insides come out they are only out for a few minutes and then he goes back to normal.
What come out is what i can only describe as it looks like a big trumpet!

Hi, I assume that you mean it is coming out of his tail?
If so it sounds like he is just showing off his erm manhood.
They are rather prone to doing this in the bath. Thankfully my little man is a gentleman and keeps his hidden.

there were some pictures of the rude parts on shelled warriors and they were to say the least quite frightening, it was nearly as long as the torts body, I,ve never had the fortune or misfortune to see my adult male spur thighs bits but as he,s nearly 12inch long I wouldn,t want to be the female, it looked like a big mushroom heaven knows where he keeps it.

Hi Thanks to all that have responded.You have put my mind at rest a bit , Like squirelann said whatever this is , it is as nearly as long as his body and doesnt really resemble man hood!
Squirrelann you mentioned you had seen pictures of this strange goings on, can you remember where?
