My 7 year old male hermanns tortoise has, on close inspection, what appears to be a third nostril!
Image the two 'normal' nostrils, and up there between the two is a third hole!
Is this normal, I wouldn't of thought so..

Hello David
I've never seen it before myself, but if the tortoise is 7 years old it's obviously not bothering him, so no worries about it

Hi David,

That's funny because I've noticed this "third nostril" as well - my 2.5 year old Hermann tort, Carla, seemed to have one at a point - I remember thinking that it was really weird, but I just went and checked it out just now and the little hole seems to have disappeared...?? Weird or what?

I don't think you should worry about it.
