  • Crested Gecko sneezing

    I got a new male crested gecko 5 days ago and today I noticed him sneezing. It happened about 4-5 times in 20 minutes. I have also noticed him opening and closing his mouth repeatedly and sticking his tongue straight out like a snake (not licking eyes)

    some other info:
    He is 2 years old
    When I noticed the sneezing I had just taken him to a Herp event so he was exposed to the cold for the short walk to and from the car.
    Also, the person I got him from kept him in a storage bin with holes poked in it and she gave me the bin and so I still have him in that. I wondered could he not be getting enough ventilation with that set up?
    Any ideas on the cause or whether or not I should get him to a vet?

    Almost sounds like he has ingested substrate. If the behavior has continued, I think a vet visit would be in order.
