She's about 2 1/2 years old. The distance of her shell end-to-end (not accounting for the curve) is about 7 inches. I've been away at school and my friend's been feeding her but I'm worried it's too much and she's getting fat. He feeds her 1 tablespoon of ZooMed maintenance formula once a day.

Is she pyramiding and what should her diet be?

Thank you! :mrgreen:

The shell could be smoother, so I would say it's minor and should get better if the diet is corrected. Use less pellets and add more veggies into the diet. Also use a better pellet than ZooMed, like OmegaOne.
