Hi all,

I have a leopard gecko that for a week now, has been doing something that looks like he's coughing. Can they cough? What should I do?

Thanks.

are you feeding crickets that are to large for him? They should be no bigger that the gap between there eyes.....

Humidity should always be very low for leos!

The reason i suggest the humidity is that my bosc monitors humidity got too high once due to substrate change and he got a runny nose rather than a cough, but moist air can cause a irritated throat and cause wheeziness that could be thought of as coughing.
