    i was holding my savannah monitor which is only around a month old and he sneezed and a snot bubble was on his nostril. should i be concerned? other than that he is eating fine he loves to dig in his tank and he loves to roam around.

    Sneezed? How odd.. but yes, be concerned and get him checked at the vet before it gets worse.. we both know that Savannahs aren't built to blow snot bubbles.. it could possibly be a cold.. or respiratory infection? Salt Secretions? (Not sure about that but thought I'd throw it in there)

    this was taken care of a very long time ago. and the vet told me he just had a slight cold. all i needed to do was boost the temps and he was fine

    what did the vet do?

    did the vet give u any type of medicine?
    because my day time temps are perfect but im not to sure on my night time temps..i dont use and nightbulbs or heat pads or anything so at night the temp in the cage is the temp in my room. which is isally 70-75 but sometimes on really cold nights it will get down to like 67-69 degrees and i was just wondering if thats a problem. and should i go buy like a night bilb or somethin along those lines.
