My tortoise somehow manage to escape the enclosure and must of hit something on the way down. I'm worried because he was left with a wound that reveals the flesh underneath the plastron. What should I do? he is now in a container with a clean paper towel.

That's very minor. It will harden off in a day or two.

I covered the injury with a bit of cotton and medical tape. I don't want substrate getting in there. You reckon is over kill? - My substrate is top soil mix with coir and Cyprus mulch.
