i don’t know what it means, but it doesn’t sound normal. i’d get the baby to a vet.

Hey Squash, get him to the veterinary for antibiotics and antiinflammatory medication.

Also use black tea (no sugar no milk) and use a Q-tip and gentle roll the tip on the eyes. This helps keeping it sterile.

it only happened that one time and she seems fine now, doing all her normal stuff, my tortoises have never acted sick, do tortoises act sick?
