There body parts are in a hard shell , unlike when we take a deep breath , our lungs waist line chest stomach all stretch out they only have there necks , normal.
Always observe a turtle they hide problems well , good eye but it's normal.
No discharge from nose eyes mouth , all good.
As most swimmers a few bubbles do come out our nose when we go under water , always observe !
Maybe he just blew his nose... had a tickle.
