Re: Does my Terrapin have shell rot too??

HI there That little guy or girl needs some good shell shedding - it looks like the white patches are where the shell is gradually loosening.

Re: Sad (?) News

Oh FFS. I deleted this from my favourites list as I obviously last came on during your 48hr downtime. This evening I've been searching the internet, just because I can, and my husband is watching boring stuff, and this bloody site pops up. I'm glad you're back and my browsing can continue.
