Current Problem - This is the 2nd time I have seen him w/ a Swollen Eye. It goes away but I managed to get a picture today. Then got him out of his cage (he got pissed off) to get more pictures but the swollen eye went back to normal.... Im worried something is wrong with his eye. Or is this how they clean there eye?

Also had him for 1 week now and this is the first shed. I've upped his misting alittle every 2 hours for 3 mins and still at noon for 5 mins.

Okay! I was hoping so but it scared me. I got on the computer and was looking and looking for information on it and then just started looking for the best repti vet to go tomorrow! I put him back in his cage and will just let him be :)

You can breathe now.
He will do it mostly when you mist him. I try to get mine to do it at least twice a week for good eye hygiene. I give them longer hand mistings to encourage eye cleaning.
