my cham does that alot of the time,especially when i forget to mist his cage
Sorry to tell you but licking the branches in his enclosure is not the same as holding his head back and gulping or attempting to swallow. If your cham is doing that, then there is something wrong with him/her. Exactly how much exp with chams do you have? If you arent really exp you need to watch out giving help. You can inadvertantly tell someone that something is normal when in fact it isnt and they could wait to long to take the animal to the vet.
95 deg, seems high for a cham that young. My male veiled is a little younge rthan yours and my basking spot is only 85. he may be too hot.
Do you think a lower wattage of maybe 60w would be ok keeping in mind he has quite a large viv?
He also doesn't tend to bask in the hot area that much although he spends almost all of his time in the top third of his viv
