my sons yellow eared belly slider that is only about a month old was feed a 1/2 of a live red worm and the turtle appeared to act as if he was choking. we pulled the worm out of the turtles mouth and put him back in his big tank but he started floating sideways and would not go to bottom of tank for an hour or so. now he opens his mouth and swipes his foot like he is trying to get something away from his face. he is swimming ok now but i am afraid he might die.
is this possible.
