I got this little one from a pet store and ever since I obtained her, she has had a strange spot on her plastron. Over time it has grown and is starting to really worry me. She eats like a cow, gets supplemented with Ca powder, and gets hours of natural sunlight when it's warm outside (but has a UVB bulb for when it's now). She eats anything! Kiwi, carrot, sweet potato, zucchini, squash, apple, sometimes pear. I stick mostly with veggies and do fruits once or twice a week. She's on a mixture of coco fiber and moss and gets misted and soaked all the time. Super active little tort and very curious. Could it be shell rot?
