I have a sulcata that is about 4-5 years old. He is healthy, active, and eats like a lawnmower, but his beak is starting to look bad. He is beginning to develop an underbite and it is starting to look quite bad. I live in an area where we don't have any veterinarians close by who deal with exotic pets, so I'm wondering what to do about his beak. I have given him a cuttle bone on a few occasions because I have read that tortoises will chew on them for calcium and it seemed like it could work as a "file" for his beak, but he just ignores them. Any suggestions would be tremendous. Thanks in advance!!

Taylor
