lately my turtle has been sticking its head out and opening its mouth very wide and its neck gets big. It does this when im holding it or when its in the water. I thought it may be hungry, but it didnt eat the food i gave it. I have had it for a few months, and it has never done this before. its a very small RES about 1.5 inches in diameter. Is it trying to tell me something??? any answer will be appreciated.

I think mine used to do that when I picked them up. I\'m not real sure why they do it. Mine do not do it anymore.

They\'re yawning. Mine do it every once in a while. But if your turtle always has its mouth open, then uit may be a problem...

it doesnt constantly have its mouth open...it may have been yawning because he did it earlier in the day when i picked him up and he was sleeping...and later in the day after i cleaned him out and he was sleeping before i cleaned him out...thanks
