Hi I’ve had my baby Red foot tortoise for about a month now and recently he’s started screeching / screaming in the bath and retracts into his shell. I do his water warm but not too hot. And only up to the start of his shell.

I monitor him throughout the day regularly and I’ve never seen him do it in his enclosure. He acts normally, eats, adventures and sleeps.

the only thing I can think off is constipation or maybe some sort of ear sensitivity, if he could hear the tv.
I’ve linked some videos of examples.
sorry for the tv being on lol

I see or hear nothing of any concern. I think you are hearing the sound of his head being pulled in while blowing air out his nose into the water. He seems to enjoy the soak.
