He was sitting there opening and closing his mouth. Is he ok or is there a good chance he is sick.

RE: Tortoise opening and closeting mouth?

Could he possibly have something stuck in his mouth? Try and see if you can see anything. I would also give him a warm soak. Maybe he will drink some water and it will wash down whatever might be bothering him.

I've caught my tort stretching her jaw from time to time after a yawn. if your tort continues to eat and not have any weird breathing noises i think she's good.
