Chameleon air puff

So my chameleon sometimes puffs air out of her nose not puffing up or hissing at me just *puff* so does it mean she likes me or taking a deep breath

My chams do this. It's similar to a "snalt" for iguanas if I'm not mistaken. Basically it's a sneeze... minerals, dust, feeder poop/debris, etc collect in their "nose holes".

At least that's my opinion. I've never seen any of them dislodge anything that way. However, I notice my females do it more often after they dig in their lay bin, maybe to get any dirt out?

My Panther males do this often as a sign of dominance or warning. It's similar to their hiss but do so without opening their mouths. Only when I'm hands on with them do they do so.
