    I've got an adult Vieled Cham about 11.5" long. Lately, he's been sitting around with his mouth open. Is anyone familiar with this behavior?

    What are the temps like in your enclosure? COuld he be overheated and trying to cool down?

    That was my thought. Reptiles usually do that when they are too hot.

    wow ok.well i did recently up grade his lighting fixture and basking bulb.. but he quit this behavior just a few hours after i posted this and he has not done it since.

    i'd say the temps are around 80 maybe a little plus/ he's got a good gradient and should be able to regulate his temp. he does do this while he is basking.

    Yup, must be it was too warm in his enclosure. Especially since he was doing it while basking!
