You have a very sick animal. Please see a vet as soon as possible. This is FAR beyond first aid.

Sick tortoise

Without knowing all the conditions, all I can say is to keep the two animals apart so they don't both get sick. Be sure you have followed all the care requirements for your star tortoise.


Keep it slow and steady.

A tortoise or turtle with bubbles coming out of its nose has a respiratory infection. That tortoise or turtle probably needs to see a vet.

Keep it slow and steady.

Don't worry your tortoise isn't sick. Mine does that alot too and I've put it down to him jus breathing whilst I hold him or he does the same head bobbing thing when he has a drink as well, so he may just be swallowing. Hope this helps.
