So my GTP has had me worried for a little while now because of his breathing. He tends to weeze on occasion when I have handled him in the past few weeks - and at first I asked around and was told that those noises can be sometimes commonplace for GTP's. I just assumed that it was because of the difference in humidity from the room to this tank.

However I checked on him tonight and it sounds like he has a bad ass stuffy nose. He is currently in shed, so I attributed that to his lack of movement in the past week or so. He can't seem to take in sudden breaths to even hiss, it's just a popping, creaking noise like you hear when your nasal passages are all blocked up because of a head cold.

To assuage my fears I tried to determine that maybe his breathing is slightly obstructed due to shed, but I highly doubt that.

Can anyone give me a confirmation about what may be going on?
