Last night I was in my room and I heard my crested sneeze....well it sounded like a sneeze. He did it a couple of times and then that was it. I didn't even know if crested could sneeze. I thought of a respiratory problem or infection, but I shouldn't jump to conclusions and besides there would have been more signs. I find I do that I freaky out a lot with my reptiles and want to rush them to that expensive vet ASAP (LOL). I keep my humidity levels not too high, but I have never had shedding problems. So I don't think it is because it is too wet. Plus I keep them on Paper towel.
Here is why I thought it might be a little cold:
I have raised my temperatures now in my room (75 F) and then let them drop a bit a night. Then one day I turned my room heater off and for got about it for a couple of days. My temperatures were 66 - 68 F for about 2 days then BOOM I put them up again. Kind of like humans when we have dramatic temperature changes we get sick.
Occasionally I do forget about my heater and this temperature drop happens, but my room normaally only gets to about 70 F before I catch it. Do you think this could be harmful to my Cresteds???
What are your thoughts?
Sorry this is so long!! :)
