    hes trying to intimidate you. the bobbing is asign of aggression.

    Isn't it also a sign of mating? He's not mean at all hes super nice and let's me hold him every day and he eats out of my hand and everything!

    It can be. But they can also do it for aggression. its just him trying to show you hes bigger and badder than you.

    with chameleons...im not sure about the aggression part. ive never witnessed this except for mating with them. now on the other hand my other lizards do head bob when aggravated or with mating also.

    Well is he doing it with mouth open? Or just a gentle nodding?

    my money is on the gentle nod. i just cant see one doing it over aggression to a human.

    Its weird you say this about the bobbing today my 7 month old male panther did the same thing to me today when I walked past his cage. I think its more of a territorial display to let us know leave me alone biotch!! Reptiles can be conditioned to eat out of your hand without eating your hand and also be picked up but they are still cold blooded very instinctual animals. Im sure someone on here knows the exact answer im just speculating so if someone could chime in on this that would be awesome as I am interested as well. :eek:

    I dont know where you guys read that, but I dont know where I got this either haha.

    I always thought it was to simulate a leaf blowing in the breeze for better camouflage.

    My Panther will occasionally head bob when I mist him with warm water. He didn't start doing it until about 8 months of age.

    my male veiled seems to enjoy head bobbing me after I open his cage to fix something, he gets very grumpy when i reach in for his food bowl thinking im going to attack him so he hisses and displays his colors and once he calms down he will head bob, i agree with jaglon53 about it being their way to tell you to stay away from their territory and them, if i dont invade his space he is perfectly fine
