Is there a way to get a torts shell smooth? Peta has a very, very bumpy shell, in parts it looks like something has stopped it growing properly and there is a serious 'ledge' on the top of her shell. X x x

Hi Stellanne,
There is probably nothing you can do now to reverse Peta's bumpy shell. However with the correct food, light and temps you can ensure it doesn't get any worse.
Kind Regards
Freddy

It seems such a shame.... Shell has a beautiful smooth shell but Petas is up and down..... Gives her character I guess. Thanks Freddy :-)) x x hugs x

That's the best way to look at it Stellanne :) . Many tortoise owners go on about smooth shells and the desire to get them, but this is really only a cosmetic excercise all for the sake of appearances and looks. As long as your tortoise is strong and healthy that's what's important. It's what's on the inside that counts! Take care. ;)
Kind Regards
Freddy :D
