Prolapsed...yes, you have a Veterinary emergency, if truly prolapsed. You may want to keep it damp, and clean, try not to let the organ drag around in abrasive gravel. However, sometimes people misdiagnose, not used to seeing a tortoise in love with a rock, they think it is a prolapse. Do your research and find a VET with relevant experience, or go to one who is not too proud to call an expert, i.e. Mader or Frye, etc. Good luck, let us know what happens. I have not had this experience with my herd, but I would like to learn from yours in case it should happen. It's always some d#%$ thing...but they are mostly fun. Good luck, Vic
