:other than fear, its a defense mechanism so that you will let him go. Lets say for instance something grabs him and puts him in his moutch, if he pees hopefully the other animal will not like this taste and let him go. And yes most animals grow out of this, i know my lizards did(savannah,blackthroat,tegu)
:Hope i helped
This post brought back some memories for me...I was working at an attraction here in florida about 10 years ago and did educational exibitions with a 4 foot gator by the name of "Half Pint"..Now this lil devil used to LOVE to pee on me and there were times I swear he picked his spots as I was getting used to picking him up and holding him away from me to keep him from getting me...Wouldn't you know it, He would never pee if I held him away but just as soon as I got him close, He would cut loose and douse me.The part that got me was everytime he would do it someone would say he was smiling when he did it..lol..I told everyone that was his revenge for all his relatives we made into boots and belts..Used to say he's next in line if he does it again!..Usually got a laugh from everyone but me..Anyone who has had gator urine on thier shirt or pants will know why I wasn't laughing..Whew!..Ahh the memories
