If your tortoise stops eating then you should go the the vet, but if he doesnt stop, you may be fine. How much did he eat? If he just ate a bit out then it may pass through, but larger may cause impaction.

And also watch for wax on the ground to see if the tortoise pooped it. If the tortoise is large, then you are probably good.
