Sneezing Tortoise
by: Shelly

One sneeze wouldn't necessarily be a sign of a respiratory infection. But it's great that you are keeping a close eye on your tortoise. Continue that and if the sneezing continues, do see a vet. Leaving things too long is never good.

In the mean time, be sure your tortoise is warm enough.

Keep it slow and steady.
