Why does pet turtle keep burying his head in sand?
Turtles burrow. It is just doing what is natural for it. It will bury itself if it has enough sand.

Well to begin with, the turtle digs a hole and lays her eggs inside it. Unlike chickens and birds, turtles dont sit on their eggs to keep them warm, the sand does it for them. BTW Incubate: Sit on eggs in order to keep them warm and bring them to hatching OR Keep eggs at a suitable temperature in order for them to develop.
