I recently got a new lizard which I have named Artemis. With seemingly no reason, she will randomly dart and run to hide somewhere during her naps. If you try to touch her, she runs and will even sometimes try to bite. This is pretty weird because shes never put up a fight about being touched or anything like that. I believe that its just nightmares causing this, but I wanted to double check if anyone else has beardies who do this.

After a good 4+ hours basking session shes allowed out of her cage to run free before backing for at least another 1-2 hours before bed. Anytime she seems cold or dark she also gets put back in. Because shes out so much, she has a lot of energy. My grandmother (who didnt grow up in America and has never had an actual pet like most people do now-a-days) will blame it on her being out so much and therefore having so much energy. She says that she needs to be in the cage most of the time and thatll stop it. Shes done it in the cage too, so Im not sure thats true. Perhaps it would calm her down a little if she was in a familiar place though?

Yes …. she's dreaming.

I often see legs moving and tails twitching and sometimes a lizard will suddenly move , occasionally the heart will be racing when happens (scared).
