Yesterday I saw my RES on the bottom of the tank with his head tucked into it\'s shell, and all this black puffy looking stuff coming out of it\'s tail! I watched for a while to see what would happen when he had to breath and when he did it slowly all went back in. But leaving the same larger looking tail that i\'ve been conserned about for the past few weeks. I made an appointment with the only vet i could find in my area that specializes in turtles.I have to wait 4 days though cause thats the first available appointment. My husbands gonna kill me when he finds out how much the office visit is!$89!and thats just the visit! Is that a resonable rate? Is he ok to wait the 4 days?

Could this be his manhood? Kind of sounds like it.

i agree. it sounds like his sexual organs were protruding from his cloacal opening. Nothing to worry about as long as it is going back inside.
