Hi,

I have a female long neck turtle (terrapin?)
I was cleaning out her tank today and whilst giving her a check over noticed the were her 2 back legs and tail go in is all swollen she can put her legs in but not right in.
She is still walking and swimming around and eating and drinking.

Are you sure that it is swollen? How much have you been feeding her. If you are overfeeding she can become fat and bloated, which would make it hard for her to retract into her shell. Think about how much you are feeding. Is she acting strangly, or is there anything else you notice different about her?
