    Question Happy noise?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My two year old leo, Gizmo, has pretty much made this one particular sound her entire adult life. Every time I’ve caught it, it’s been at night, and it’s while she’s literally just standing there staring or lounging with her eyes closed. She’ll only do it once or twice. It doesn’t sound aggressive or fearful, it’s faint and neutral-sounding. I don’t think she’s scared - she usually does it after like two hours of silence and lack of movement on my part in my room. It’s almost like the squeak of a door. Sorta like “rreeehhh..” I’ve read they sometimes squeak when they’re hungry, but like I said, every time I’ve heard her doing it she’s been laying on her belly just vibing. Could she be calling a male? Curious to hear what you guys think.
    There’s my beautiful girl. I love watching her relax, she looks so peaceful. Makes me sleepy too.

    My male squeaks sometimes (he's about 16 months old) - he got very vocal this past February-March, chirping a few times a night. I'd get up and check on him, and he'd just be standing somewhere in the cage, looking around - of course I when I tried to video it he'd wander into a hide and be silent. Now I will hear a little squeak every once and a while, but he never seems in distress. His only other noise is a faint nose whistle when he's breathing - I can only hear it when he's being held or when he's climbing around on my shoulder on the couch. He's done that since he was a baby, and the vet has checked it a few times. No idea why he whistles, but it is only audible when his respiratory rate increases.

    As a baby he was a screamer, anytime I was in his space - filling water bowls, adding bugs, cleaning poop - he would stand up real tall and scream like a little dinosaur. He would even hiss/bark at the roaches if they touched him. Thankfully he grew out of this and is super chill.
