Hi all,
Queenie has been acting really strange the last few hours, she keeps opening her mouth and earlier it sounded like she coughed / choked.
I'm really worried about her as she seems unsettled too, not how she usually is.

Has anyone had this before?
Thanks,
Nic

Sorry for late reply Nic, the forums had problems. I hope you got this sorted now as it’s certainly not a normal behaviour. A vets visit is required.

Hi Nic,

How's your tortoise doing, did you get her into a vet. x

Hiya,
She's absolutely fine now, it must have been a one off!
Not sure what is was about but it doesn't seem to have caused her any bother lol.
Thanks though.
Nic
