Hey Rose I basically would agree with Sukie- I have some hyperactive string
beans myself, but make sure food he's eating has adequate nutrition, and
also check his mouth carefully for dental problems or mouth sores that might
make it uncomfortable to eat. And watch for signs of nausea (mouth pawing)
or pain (teeth grinding), if not I'd relax as long as he's acting normally.
