My box turtle, three-toed, has a strange growth coming out of her rear, below her tail. It has happened once before, like two years ago and went away. It is very red, and looks like two round sacks under her tail.

It appears as though it hurts her.

Is this an egg sack, or is she ready to breed? She has not been around another turtle since she was purchased over 5 years ago. Anyone have any ideas?
THANKS

Your turtle is prolapsing this can happen every once in awhile and if you keep this clean this will not hurt the turtle. This will actually go away. This is ok if your still worried then just call your local herp vet.

It turns out my girl is a guy and ended up having to have his penis amputated. It got septic and very inflamed and did not return to normal. He is doing much better now.
THANKS
