Dear PhRatz, I do not know the fate or treatment regime for this unfortunate California Desert Tortoise. It just had this dramatic and devastating herpes outbreak. Its owner is very fastidious, would not allow other tortoises on the property, we were both blown away at this unfortunate event, as she was so careful/selective. I will give her a call and find out what happened. Last I heard is that a feeding tube was "installed" and things were not going well... Also, there was no known exposure to Russians or any other tortoise, the source is a mystery except it must/may have been there all along. Vic
