Lately, I have noticed my RES has developed scratches on the top of his shell. They look like patches of scuff marks along his back. I think he may have gotten them from his basking rocks, but I never seen flip on his back. What do you think could be the cause of it?

Are your rocks sharp? You should try to find rocks that are rounded.

Anyway, keep the abrasions clean and make sure it doesn\'t get infected or develop into shell rot.

Cheers,
