This post might be a little out there. I saw on my blog stats that someone had searched Sandy Springs Box Turtle Sounds and came across my blog. It got me thinking. What does a turtle sound like? I really have never heard one. I did some research and found out that turtles do not have vocal cords so they do not have auditory sounds like other beings. Please follow this link to hear turtle sounds. If you learn one thing new a day, have it be today from this blog post.

  1. I don’t know about all box turtles but mine, who I had for 18 years (and who recently died), did not make any vocals calls. She did have a reflexive reaction to fear that manifest as a single short burst of air that sounded sort of like “pfff”, when she was startled and quickly pulled her head into her shell. It was not particularly loud and seemed to come from her nose, I think. Also, after drinking water, she made some gurgling type sounds but, otherwise, she seemed to be unable to make sounds intentionally, including when she was in distress and in need of help –which was very disconcerting to me.
