Hi all, I'm new in these parts!
I just obtained three young (foot-long) Frilleds today, and noticed some bizarre and disturbing behavior. Perhaps it is normal - I think I've seen anoles doing this too. One of the frillies shut its eyes tight and then BUGGED them seemingly right out of the sockets. The eyelids were kept closed during this procedure. It then retracted them slightly, and opened them just enough that I could observe it kind of "rolling" its eyes, as a membrane (do they have a nictating membrane?) slid back and forth across the eyes. It almost seemed like it was "cleaning" it's eyes. The eyes then retracted back into the sockets and were adjusted into place, like nothing had happened. Is anyone else familiar with this? Is it normal?
