My sister's iguana used to do that when he was in 'prey' mode or aggressive about something. He'd do it when he saw his reflection in the mirror or if one of our other pets was near. Is there anything different in his surroundings?

I took her out and put her in a container. I had her with me when I called 2 vets in case they asked a few questions. She closed her mouth and had a lump in her throat for a while, but when I looked before I put her back in there was no longer a lump. When she went back in her mouth went right back to being open. Maybe it is a territorial thing like Saje said.

There was not anything different when she started doing it, although she did live with 5 other salamanders so that may be it. We just got two new ones, but she was doing it before we got the two new ones.

do you de chlorinate the water?
the list of questions to really help you out are endless.
you NEED a test kit
The tank is filtered.
It is 29 gallons.
I clean it weekly, usually, but since we moved it hasn't been cleaned for a little while.
Yes, I do de chlorinate the water, of course.
