Mabel is going back to the vet on Tuesday as she is still straining and no poop :(

This morning she has been passing a brownish/yellowish liquid in the bath. Should I be alarmed?

Swapped substrate

I've just put coco coir in Mabel's enclosure. She previously had a mix of topsoil/play sand. She's ever so confused :D Hope she likes it.

Mabel is in and behaving normally (eating and basking like a pro!). Do all torts try and slow at some point or is it just dependant on the tort?
