Early Signs Of Pyramiding?

05 April 2015 - 10:33 AM

Hi everyone, 

I'm a bit worried about my tortoise Titus. He's a 7 months old Hermann's, and I'm a bit concerned he might be showing early signs of pyramiding. 
The patterns on his shell are slightly raised as per the pics. Not sure if I'm being paranoid or not. Any ideas? 
He lives in a wooden tortoise table, on a mixture of sand and sterilised top soil. It's 6 foot by 2 foot, and he has houses and plants to hide under, as well as a heat lamp. 
He eats once a day, either dandilion leaves, lambs lettuce, gem lettuce or leaves from the florette crispy salad bags, and has Nutrobal once or twice a week on his lunch. I bath him every 1 - 2 days. 
Any thoughts much appreciated! Thank you!
