Yes, turtles belch at times.

Burping is caused by expelling air out through the mouth, a common biological function in humans and turtles. Leatherbacks have been noted to sound like they are burping when they lay their nest. Turtles might “burp” unexpectedly, expelling air when they defensively retract into their shell.
