Hello,

My little Eastern Hermanns hatchling (4 months) is on a strict schedule and routine. He always wakes up and sleeps at the same time, his lights go on and off everyday at the same time (12 hour cycle). Tonight he randomly emerged from his hide around an hour before his light goes off for the night. He's never done this before what could it be? He ran out and was scratching so after a half hour I turned the light off and put him infront of his hide to go in. There are also tons of fireworks going off so maybe he was scared?? I thought they cannot really hear.

Animals can feel the vibration, they can smell the fire and smoke, and chemicals.. I’d bet it’s not usually the sound that sets off animals, as dogs and cats can sit in front of a tv that is practically shaking the house with sound, and it’s not an issue, but add to the sound, vibration, confusing/dangerous smells and instinctively the danger signals that smoke sends through them. So yeah that would be my guess
