    My Leo likes to watch TV. She watches it from her hide, and knows when it's on, cause she comes to the glass and turns her head toward the TV screen, and just settles down and relaxes. At first I thought...nah...she's not really doing that, it just looks like it, but she only comes to the glass when the TV is on and she actually turns her head in the right direction.

    Hey, thats cute Most animals will observe their surroundings, how long has this been going on for? Just watch his little throat, if its "bobbing" up and down quite fast he might actually be frightened of the tv! If not, well Im not sure what to say, someone will probably get their knickers in a twist about tv being unhealthy or something haha//
    I am a veterinary student, I can provide some advice but..

    IF YOU HAVE ANY HEALTH ISSUES WITH AN ANIMAL, CONSULT YOUR VET, NOW.
    Most surgeries provide a 24/7 number you can call to get in touch with one of their vets, call it and explain your situation. The internet is not a vet and nobody can properly diagnose an issue without examining the animal in person.

    You know if you sit too close to the TV, your eyes will go crossed.
    I'm kidding! But as stated earlier, be on the look out for agressive behavior.

    My bearded dragons watch TV too. If me or my husband stands up and blocks their view, they'll look around us to watch it. Silly heads.

    Since some time last week. At least that's when I noticed, because I keep the front of her rock off so I can look at her when she's in there. She doesn't mind that. No her throat isn't bobbing fast, she just kinda chills and watches whatever happens to be on. Curious like, not scared or anything that I can tell. I'll try not to watch any alligator shows...that might scare her...lol

    I will, thanks. I just think she likes her surroundings. She doesn't get any aggressive body language that I can tell. She is quite laid back no matter what's going on!

    OMG! Seriously? I've seen her do that too, like try to get in a better position to see around me if I get up! That's crazy! I wonder what attracts them to the TV. To be honest, I thought having a Lizard would be kinda boring, but she's really as fun as my other animals, and she has a personality all of her own too! I love it!

    Aaww!!
    My african grey parrot loves the tv, he goes "im sorry. Im
    Sorry." if it gets turned off cause he thinks i do it cause hes done something bad haha, he picked that up from hearing my boyfriend and i having a grumble then one of us saying "im sorry" haha so mow he says it whenever things like getting his favorite toy taken away for misbehaving happen :P but anyway, he loved the tv and watches the baby channels when we're out to keep him occupied. We did nature channels once but he started copying the noise of seagulls and hyenas! :L animals are ace. geckos dont have very good vision so he might just be like "oooh pretty lights!" :P

    Actually they have very good vision according to scientist. Some species more than others and if they are healthy of course. Leopard geckos in particular see better than I do, I know that much.
