    He twitches his head when he is basking or if he is ready for sleep.I have had him about 5 years and not had any trouble with him. He is about 15 years old i think. He is in good health eats well and has 3 baths a week. Not constipated. Hope someone can help. thank you

    What are you asking help with? The fact that he twitches? Has he done this the whole 5 years you've had him? Then I wouldn't worry about it.

    It has been the last 6 months we have seen him twitching his head. When he is basking.
