Our tortoise is 6 years old. He started making a hissing sound when he first notices us and I Thought to was a startle response, however, I Have just noticed that he is making this sound periodically while eating. Does anyone know what this might be or whether it is cause for concern? He appears to be healthy in all other respects.

As you haven't bothered to ansa my questions -

It's not normal.
It could be stress related.
Any deterioration rush it to a 'reptile vet.'
