I just went out and check my male EBT. He was not very far down in his hibernation area. I took him in and weighed him, his weight was fine. I turned him over and checked his shell. His bottom shell appears to have a problem.

It looks like it was scrapped on something and bled a little in several places, but the reddness is under the scutes. I tried to wash it off but nothing came off.

I've had him for a few years. When I got him his top shell wqs not in great shape any way, but his bottom shell seemed ok.

I'm worried about septsis. Oh the other hand there is a lot of garnden waste in his pile. Could it just be a stain for some rotting plants?
