Question Do Bettas Yawn?

I've heard before that bettas can yawn. Is this true?

No, they do yawn, but they do something that makes there mouth look like an O. maybe thats what they thought it was.

I think I bore my betta. If I stare at him long enough, he yawns and swims off.

Its not a yawn like us...its called a yawn because of how it looks...an occasional yawn is normal and how they dislodge things from the gills...excessive yawning can be a sign of a problem....usually parasites in the gills, injury, scar tissue from past ammonia burns or injury, high ammonia/nitrite, something stuck in the gills- to name common reasons for excessive yawning.
