Question Leopard Tortoise Mouth Question

I was wondering if his mouth is the right color. He is a leopard tort, 7 yrs old(I think!) It seems darker than it used to be, and I don't know if this is normal, or if there is something wrong with him. Any help will be greatly appreciated! The liquid at the bottom of his mouth is water, I just filled his water dish!

here is an open mouth pic

Thanks Paul! I have been worried about it, and in my area we seem to have no vets who specialize in reptiles, so I thought I would ask others who keep leopards!
