Russian Tortoise Beaks and Throat Breathing
by By Cheyanne
I have had a Russian tortoise for about 6 months now, and I just barely found out that your either supposed to clip their beaks for them or give them something too much on to break them down. I was wondering if to long of a beak could be harmful to him. He hasn't wanted to eat much lately. And for some reason I think that a long beak could keep him from opening his mouth or keep him from eating. So if you know about that it would be really helpful.
Also, my tortoise does a weird thing with his throat when he's breathing. (I'm actually not sure if this is a breathing thing.) It expands out and it looks like he's like a frog when he does it. I'm not sure if this is normal at all. Thanks.
