Hi guys,

One of my baby sulcatas stopped eating a few days ago, and doesn't move around much...spending most of the day sleeping (eyes closed). Today, I soaked him for about an hour and noticed that he did these little neck jerks where he would push his head out really quickly and then retract. It seemed like he was sneezing or coughing. Whenever I picked him up and put him on dry land, he would stand tall with his forearms straight down and his head held high.

I'm taking him to the vet Monday morning but right now is there anything I can do to keep him stable? I'm afraid it's a respiratory problem either due to cold or maybe too dry an environment? What about his strange stance?

Thanks for the responses.
