Turtles are the most amazing creatures. They can live in water and on land, they have a shell that protects them from predators, and they can breathe through their noses or their mouths depending on what is needed. But just because turtles are so cool doesn’t mean that they’re invincible!
In this blog post, we explore whether or not turtles drown when put into water.
Can a turtle drown?
When you put your pet turtle into the sink to give it a bath does he turn around and head back out of the bowl?
Turtles do not like being submerged underwater at all! If your child pours him too quickly, then there’s little chance of saving his life if he falls down. When children see something new, they don’t understand the consequences of their actions.
Turtles are often put in water to cool them off or to clean them, but if you let your turtle dry out after a bath it will be just fine! Make sure that there isn’t anything on its shell before putting him back into his tank as he can get an infection this way.
