Customer Question

Just bought a RT 3 days ago. She hasn't ate or drank anything that I can see. I soaked her in a warm bath earlier and dried her well. Noticed her raising her head and this hissy sounds came out and a nose bubble. Is this from bath? Ask she lays under the light or under her log. Not much activity
