Re: big pupils, what does it mean

Look at some of the putdoor pics on here compared to the indoor ones, pupils definitely dilate in the dark, if the pupils arent changing with differing light then i have no idea what would cause that.

Re: big pupils, what does it mean

i have noticed on some of the more aggressive snakes i have kept that the pupils going from small to large is a sign of imminent pain lol, the big atb i used to own was a good example of this, she used to tolerate a small amount of handling but once you seen the eyes go big you knew the striking was soon to follow.

Re: big pupils, what does it mean

My hoggie's eyes will get big when she feels threatened...think it is something all animals do.
