Hi guys just got two green horned mountain lizards today and were told to put them right in the tub when we got home. Well we did and they didn’t like it at first we took one out almost right away because she was uncomfortable but our boy was swimming around then stopped under water and stopped moving completely so we took him out as well, I seen a post that’s now deleted from here about how they can hold their breath for a long time so I know he wasn’t drowning but I’m just wondering if that’s normal for him to go under water and not move a muscle.....

My water dragons and water monitor is the only reptiles in my collection I’ve seen submerging themselves underwater for a while. But when your bathing them put a large rock or something in the tub so they can rest on before they wanna swim again.

Okay thank you very much I’ll do that next time and keep the water level shoulder level to try and avoid it

I dont expose mine to chlorinated tap water. I keep a dish of clean distilled water in his jail cell and a spray bottle with distilled water. I give him a mist shower twice a day. He seems to love his showers and sometimes rests in his water bowl.
