YES..its a new behavior.... Franny is with us for last two years now....we have not experienced such problem except during winters.
Thanx any way for the suggestions...

Is this a new behavior?

You didn't say how long you have had this animal. If the behavior is new, you should see a vet as soon as possible.

If the animal is new to you, be sure you are feeding the correct foods and that there is enough sunlight for metabolization of the food.
