I’ve had a baby painted turtle for a few months now and recently I’ve noticed that it will open its mouth occasionally and when it does it makes a popping noise and sometimes it makes this high pitched squealing noise. The water temperature is always between 80-90 and he has a basking area with uva and uvb. His appetite hasn’t changed although he doesn’t eat much veggies mainly because he doesn’t enjoy them but i try once or twice a week and i switch between two different pellets to give some variety. I’m not sure if there’s an issue like respiratory infection or something like it or if he’s okay. Any help is appreciated!
