Reptiles have become very popular pets in recent years. Although quite hearty, they can be very ill while showing vague clinical signs. Changes in behavior, eating habits, bowel or urinary habits, hibernation, shedding, etc should be considered red flags. Call to make an appointment with Dr. Glasser as soon as possible.
