Eating Things They Shouldn't Eat...

06 February 2015 - 04:15 PM

Ok this is going to be a strange one...

I was giving Sheldon a bath today, and came back and found she had done her usual bowel movement in the water. Upon closer inspection, I found a 5p coin.

Now, this seems something extremely large for her to have eaten, and also Im a little worried about:

a) How long ago she ate this
b) If that has caused any internal damage

Has anyone's tortoises ever eaten something like this?

She is 141g 9cm SCL and around 3 years old.

Im rather concerned, as Im fairly certain I wouldnt be able to pass something proportionally that large. I can only assume that it's something she found while stretching her legs and decided to eat.
