Hi AJ,

Do you still have all your collards then? I think the last time we messaged, you were considering selling up.

OP, great little lizard you have.

Hi Danny answered your pm yes I do indeed still have my collareds as I thought long and hard about giving up but I find it too hard as they are a part of my family and would probably regret it afterwards.So yes no doubts I will have young again later in the year.

As for the question about like a sneezing no none of my collared are like this,Do you use a water bowl ? if so maybe your humidity is too high,I don't have any water in with my collareds as they get all they need from there food although I do more so at the start of the season offer them water from a syringe which they will readily take as there viv should be hot and dry.
Maybe its also the sand ? I use playsand from argos/Tesco/bq it tends to be different colours so I like to mix and when I use it well its often damp so I microwave to dry but its often really dusty so I use a sieve and pour through several times outside from a height so any dust blows away before I put in my vivs.

Sorta the same thing applies with any small animal sawdust is bad as its small and can be inhaled so best to use shavings that's something I found out in my younger days with my ferrets sneezing and sore eyes even my sons hamster I make sure he buys small shavings rather than dust.

It's only ever when I pick her up like she's warning me but yet she jumps onto me sometimes. I think I may have a diva and she only wants handled on her terms lol

But ill take your advice on the sand!! Thanks

In that case it just been defensive,The problem is all collareds have there own personality and my young are little monsters when they hatch as all are,They will attack me lol and they actually take upto a week or slightly more before they settle down and they bite each other a lot when first going into a viv as they think everything wants to eat them but once they realize they are safe they then settle down and you find some are more friendly than others but all are fine being handled and some actively seek to be handled.

I handle my young daily before they are sold onto shops/new owners,the problem is when they go to shops they don't get the handling that they are offered here (I am not saying they don't get attention but they wont get as much)and I have no control over them kids banging on vivs shouting or whatever so they could become nervous after my care.some people are also very heavy handed or in one case I no of someone used gloves which turned a ok wild caught collared into a nervous wreck around hands(I no I own him now)whereas the other extreme is a wild caught female I owned that was friendly from day one (she is sadly missed as my first loss due to age)Yours maybe just needs time to settle down again.

My Berber skink does the same......I thought at first,because she burys herself in the sand, she was kind of blowing her nose, but I now think it's a warning to leave her alone Although like your collared she sometimes climbs on you hand and runs up your arm and tries to get on your head.
