Red Footed Tortoise New Owner Need Help

03 September 2012 - 12:05 AM

My daughter brought home a tortoise and it has a scar on the top of its head that looks like someone burned it with a cigarette, It's beak is very overgrown. I have made an appointment to a local vet who treats reptiles. I'm afraid it will have long term deformities though. I can not see any nostrils on the top of his head either, could they be plugged by the burn? I feel so bad for it. I have managed to get the tortoise to eat. The beak does cause alot of effort and struggle for it while eating. Can continued trimming of the beak get the tortoise back to somewhat normal?
