I wrote to someone who has this hatchling's sibs - and she sees the same squiggles. She keeps her torts indoors. I don't know what their diet is like. Based on the reports of others finding the same pattern on their russians, I have a feeling that it's a run-of-the-mill thing.

This tort has recieved very, very few pellets. Maybe once every 4-6 weeks I throw some calcium powder on a few tiny pellets, soak them and feed them to her.

This is only the second hatchling that I've kept past 2 months of age, so I probably just missed this stage of development. The older sib has a few faint squiggles, but after 3 yrs they may just have faded. I'll observe this tort to see what happens.
