    Hey guys!
    Just a quick question, is it normal for my stimmie to rest on places with his head up like a water dragon? [​IMG]
    He's done it since he was a hatchling so I don't think it's a health problem, I'm just curious :)

    Looks pretty normal, both of mine are known to do that sometimes, especially when awake/active. Nice snake.

    Oh cool! I was just checking, I'd never forgive myself if it was a sign of something malicious and I just dismissed it.

    Ours is a yearling, and he seems to do it mostly after feeding, or if he is going for water. But yeah it seems completely natural. Ours does it a lot by resting his head on the water bowl which is probably 8cm tall, looks funny but he's certainly happy!

    Damn it, you got a flickering tongue pic. I'm on the hunt for one of my own.
