 Russian tort penis??

so i was giving my russian a little bath and brushing him with a soft tooth brush because he looked soo dirty and he had a little poo stuck to is tail, and i was very gently stroking his tail and vent to get the poo off and to my surprise this greyish-black thing popped out! i thought it was poop at first but then it went back in! i know he is a boy so was that his penis? is it bad if it comes out like that?? also i was wondering what the best calcium supplements are for him? should i give them everyday? I adopted him because he only has 3 and a half legs, and also he has a lot of knicks in his shell and it is kinda flaky! will this repair itslef or is there anyway i can help his shell look healthier? i have him under a MVB so he gets uvb! He does spend most of his time hiding under some orchard grass, so can the uvs penetrate this or should i remove it all together so he can get the most amount of uvbs? thanks for any help you could give me!!

Hi Reptagirl, have not seen you around here before.

Anyway, by the sounds that is his penis. Disgusting isnt it? my hermanns often flashes me and its disgusting!

Anyway, you can use nutrobal supplement for him...this should be used 2 or 3 times a week. Sprinkle over the tortoises food and thats fine.

Can post photos of his shell so we can be exact on those questions.

maybe post photos of his indoor and outdoor cage.

you can order nutrobal from online websites, EBAY is very common and sometimes cheap.

Or find a local pet store and ask if they sale reptile Products, if yes...ask for nutrobal or a supplement for tortoises.

usually it is a dusty powder formation, and you sprinkle it over their food. Nurtobal is just one i use, you can use other supplement brands such as TNT, T-rex, Nutrobal, and similar things.

For now just put a slate of cuttlebone in. thats used for parrots, and other birds... it is calcium, and does the tortoise good. Either they eat it or they dont. if not dont take it out, as they will climb it often and that keeps their claws and beak in shape.
