 What is going on wiht my RTB

I have a 8-9ft RTB that is around 5 years old.It started about 5 months ago she stoped eating and just like a month ago she started back at a guinea pig every 2 weeks .She has now started to open her mouth and hold it there for around 45sec to 1min and then closes it and moves it side to side. So I opened her month and it looks good not like mouth rot or anything, it didnt hurt her and when I let go she acted fine. What do you think is going on with her? Thanks for your help.

If she is exhibiting this behavior AFTER eating the meal, and ONLY after eating the meal, this behavior is not incredibly unusual. If she is doing it every so often during the day just because she may have an RI starting to form. Now, she could easily have stopped eating because of ovulation or something similiar. If there was no lethargy or secondary symptoms to her lack of eating, I am sure she is fine. In my opinion it is best to get her checked by a vet. It can’t hurt.

Ya I never thought about her ovulation cycle and and she only did it 3 times and I have notseen her do it since I put the post up. I will take herto the vet just in case it cant hurt and she needs a check up anyway.Thanks for the help.
