Odd behavior - help!

Hello! So my beardie is around 3 years old, male (so I’ve been told, I was terrible at trying to sex him myself), I’ve had him since he was a baby. I moved in January and since then he’s been more active than ever (he’s happier here), but the last two weeks he’s acting almost neurotic. His eating habits are the same, but now he poops multiple times a day when he used to only once or twice a week. He’s out of his cage multiple times a day and over the last 2 weeks has been doing a lot of glass surfing, when I let him out he darts all over the place and looks around like crazy when he used to just kinda mosey around and hangout. Today he started this thing where he kind of sinks into my floor and digs with his front and back leg on on side at the same time.. does anyone know what this could mean? Thanks in advance :)

It sounds like he has spring fever. They tend to go a bit nuts this time of year. Best thing to do that I've found is just give him as much space to roam as you can and let him run around and burn off some energy. Setting up a portable basking light so he can warm up while he's out is helpful too. This tends to calm down after a while on it's own.
