I have 2 baby RESs and the male keeps making a funny noise. i don\'t know if it\'s air bubles or what but it\'s almost a scraping like sound that\'s very quick. I never catch him doing it. THe last time he did it i saw his head come out of the water really quick. Can turtles sneeze??? That\'s almost what it looked like! Does it mean he\'s sick? What should I do??
Thank you!!!!

Yes turtles do snezz they can get colds just like any other animal. Infact they get colds easier this could be the case so u might want to take him out of the water for a little while each day just to make sure. Other than that turtles can also have allergies just like us in which case you would\'nt have anything to worry about. good luck
