Shedding skin is pretty normal, but it shouldn't take that long, maybe a week or so. Making sure they are well hydrated can help in the process. Regular soakings are important for tortoises. Most people don't realize it, but in the wild a good number of species of tortoise spend much of their time down inside high humidity burrows. Even species we would otherwise consider to be desert or grassland tortoises still have an opportunity to be in that high moisture environment.

Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.
