Y tort keeps opening and closing his mouth like he's eating something. And when I took a closer look, he had a price of his food in his mouth and he wasn't swallowing it. Could this be a problem? Could he choke? Should I take it of of his mouth? And if so how do I do that??? Help please

What kind of food? Maybe try soaking him. Maybe he will drink and get it down. Let's us know if he still has it stuck. The only way I can think of to pull it out is to put a stick in his mouth when he opes it to keep it opened and then take a pair of blunt tip tweezers and pull it out slowly. Good luck, I hope it goes down on it's own.
