ok, today my turtle usually is enthusiastically swimming around his tank and basking but tonight he just stopped and started to wade in teh shallow area and stick his head out of the water teh tank temp is good its all clean and his neck when he does this weird thing his head goes all teh way out and his like gullet seems to expand like a frog and he opens his mouth wide, what is this also the paint on his shll like the natural stuff is wearing down and becoming just a pale green.

Keep him dry, and then soak him for an hour or two everyday. Don\'t forget! He might die if he gets too dry! (and I mean REALLY dry)
