Does my turtle have prolapse?​

What is happening is the turtle’s insides are coming out of the opening on the tail. It is the intestines and their reproductive organs. This doesn’t hurt much, but it is very annoying. It’s a normal occurrence, and no one knows why it happens.

The turtle is not aware of this being an important body part, so please watch them to make sure it goes back in. If your turtle is on dry land when this happens, put them in lukewarm water to help keep it moist.

If this happens a lot, it may cause distress and they may need the help of a veterinarian.
