This was the question that the nearly 6 year old Kiddo asked of me. I thought, yes, they probably do. She, on the other hand, couldn’t imagine this. “They don’t have noses,” she said. “Sure they do,” I replied. “Don’t they?”
So we made a bet on it. She wanted a $100 marker, but I made her settle for $5. We looked it up on the internet.
Turtles sneeze. And it’s usually a dangerous sign of upper respiratory infection.
I found this picture of a turtle on Flickr. This turtle was purchased by a saintly person named Taro Taylor and her cousin from a fish market. They shot a picture and released him into the sea. I love that. Thank you Taro – for the use of the picture and for saving a beautiful animal!! By the way….did he happen to sneeze?
