Do Bettas Yawn?

I just want to know because Perry opened her mouth and it looked like she was yawning.

You know, I had the same question when I had my first betta. He opened his mouth as wide as he could and it almost seemed like he was yelling and flaring; I got freaked out and thought he was dying. Turns out, he was just fine! My boys now do this, too, so I am led to believe that bettas really do yawn :3

Yes! She opens her mouth for about 5 seconds and she flares. I thought that was pretty cute.

Most of my fish do it. Even my 200+ babies yawn haha. (imagine, if one of them yawned and the rest yawned from it being contagious?)

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Yes Sena has 200+ from a recent spawn. I believe bettas do yawn. All 10 of mine do. It lasts for about 5 seconds. They open their mouths really wide and flare.
