Hello again,

What has been her diet up to now? Have you actually seen the male biting her? This almost looks like like a Vitamin A overload. Please give more details on diet. Do you see shedding skin anywhere else? Look at the back legs and around the edge of the shell.

I don't mean to be a pain but completely disagree with your vet on giving her live fish. RES eat less protein and more plant matter and veggies as they get older. Vets mean well but are often times wrong. I know this from experience and I have an exotic vet.

You are doing the right thing by asking questions so please don't take my comments the wrong way. That is what the forum is for.

Ps: I had to throw in this pic of my baby box turtle. He is so cute.
Linda
