Random question, I realize, but I'm a new BP owner and I've seen Smaug yawn twice...or at least that's exactly what it looks like. It's adorable as anything, so I really hope it is just a yawn and not some sort of weird behavior I should be worried about. So...do snakes yawn?
I don't know if they "yawn" for the same physiological reasons that we do...but they appear to. Excluding the need to realign their jaw after eating. they will just randomly "yawn" from time to time. Sometimes stress can cause it. Constant yawning or gaping jaws is a serious indicator of a respiratory infection.
"True self control is waiting for the movie to start to eat your popcorn."
"Why would the movie eat my popcorn???"
i keep balls carpets and GTPs and all of them do it from time to time, aside from realigning the jaw, they seem to do it when i wake them up in the middle of the day just like we yawn in the morning. wether its just "waking up" or stretching i donno, but then again, don't we usually stretch when we yawn in the morning anyways?
i always think its cool when the GTPs do it, their teeth are huge.
