    Sneezing?

    Normal, or not normal?

    I only heard him do it twice.....his tank is right next to my computer monitor, and when i turn off his light he frequently sits there and watches , it is funny, but tonight he sneezed....that is the only time i have ever heard him do that.

    Do you think i should worry...should i make changes?

    Snakes can't sneeze.
    What you saw was most likely a hiss. If he saw you move or something, a hiss sounds a lot like a sneeze. He may have tried to strike a bit too which could've explained the quick jerk that was 'sneeze-like'.

    Re: Sneezing?

    Haha... I don't think lizards are able to sneeze, the closest thing you'd probably see is Marine iguanas in Galapagos islands blowing salt water out of their nose...
    It's probably something similar to a hiss or maybe a mating call or something... maybe make it so the computer screen doesn't glow into his cage if you think that is bothering him...

    I don't know a whole lot about lizards but one time of anything shouldn't be anything serious

    Are you sure it isnt barking?

    They are small so it may not sound like much.
