this could just be a dumb question but is it normal for them to lick their lips after licking something? i dont think shes thirsty because i gave her water yesterday and she ate some hornworms today. also i opened the side of her mouth and i saw some saliva is having a bit of saliva normal or does she have a uri? she isnt lethargic or not eating, actually sje has a really big appetite. this could just be a dumb question but i am really nervous

It is normal for them to have saliva just not excess amounts --- RI can be caused by very low humidity in the tank --- incorrect UVB -- NO coils please

ok the humidity is being taken w/ a dial hygrometer ? Please upgrade to a digital probe hygrometer Exo Terra Digital Hygrometer | Dubia.com
you want humidity above 20 % optimal is 40-50% nothing over 70% -- if its that low down to 10 please get a humidifier going next to the tank to bring the humidity up- your UVB is a brand and bulb please? they have certain placement and distance for the bulbs - and your screen is going to determine where that fixture goes

it is already being taken by one that is digital. is it fine if i just mist the tank when its low? i have a reptisun 10.0 T8, the distance between the bulb and decor is 9 inches. i have a wide hole screen and the uvb is placed inside

Ok so your lighting is good and temps --- rule that out for cause --- I dont think there is anything going on I think its normal for the saliva but post a pic of the inside of his mouth and I can have someone take a look for sure -- but I would get your humidity up in the tank if its down to 10 % -- misting may not be enough I had a humidifier going this past winter between my two dragons tanks -- it was falling to low for my liking --- mine got down below 20% w/ the humidifier it got up to 30% during the day and 35% at night --

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
