head withdrawal

If I want to examine my tortoise and he has withdrawn his head into his shell, what do I do to get his head back out?

Just leave him be and he will eventually come out. You can't force them. That will just stress him out. I know. I tried to "force" one of my turtles and after let the poor guy alone for awhile, he came out! If you are really worried about him, take him to the vet.
