I just brought my turtle out to play a little bit. Normally he\'s happy to walk around and likes having his shell rubbed and touched but this time he frantically tried to climb out of the shoe box I had him in (so he wouldn\'t fall off or crawl under something). I couldn\'t get him to calm down and then he vomitted so I quickly put him back in the water where he vomitted some more (and immediately ate some of it again). I\'m trying to figure out what happened. So far I have two ideas: 1-he was stressed and this was related to it or 2-it was related to him having just ate, maybe he ate too much or maybe he didn\'t break it up enough since the food was still in rather large pieces when it came back up. I\'d like to know if this ever happened to anyone and why it happened so I can try and avoid it.

Yeah, I\'ve seen this happen with my turtles before. They were eating on a crayfish. They tried to eat a piece too bag. They regurgitated it and then ate it again.
