    Okay so I've had my Green Ameiva for a little over 4 months now and I've just recently noticed that he almost squeaks, I'm just unfamiliar with this and was curious as to if anyone knows if it's normal or not? He's in a tank that's 48x13x13, I keep the warm end about 95-100 and the cool end sits between 80-85 and he's got almost 6 inches of substrate

    Yeah I believe it’s a defensive response similar to anoles.

    Odd, not sure why he'd be defensive at the moment. Maybe I stressed him out when I changed his water, Thanks for the reply

    When they're nervous they do that. Normal, really
