Default New redfoot

Hello all. First post here
I recently got a baby redfoot, this is my first tort.
Ive got him in a viv with correct temp/humidity.
Anyway his shell has loads of tiny white spots/bumps and was just wondering if anyone can give me an idea of what it is?

That's the natal part of the scute (the part he/she is hatched with). It's like that with all tortoises and just gives a little added camouflage when they are out eating in the wild. In the wild that will wear off eventually.

Very nice Cherryhead by the way
