Northwest Tortoise
I'm saddened to report the Sulcata did not make it. She passed yesterday afternoon. When they are this bad, there's just nothing to work with. She passed in the warm shade in a grassy area. I'd like to think she's at peace now. I've attached other photos of her and info graphic about shell development. I can't say it enough: the shell is the tortoise. They can't get a new one. If the shell develops poorly, EVERYTHING inside and out develops poorly. A lot of you asked the cause of her particular case. I can be as scientific as the next person but I like simplicity. This is human caused. Each species of tortoise needs different care. Poor care = health problems, MBD, early death. Correct care = healthy and happy tortoise for life.
