Smarty Pants Dragon Loves Climbing

Yesterday, I let Figment have some floor time and he discovered the screen lid to his enclosure. He promptly tasted it, tasted it again, then scaled its 36" up to the shelf it was leaning on and sat there, looking quite smug.

Today, I decided to move the screen lid to where it wouldn't be as easy for Figment to get to (I didn't want him climbing and falling - not all the stuff on my shelves is secure). I put him out for his walkabout, and settled in to do some other things in the room... when I hear the scrabbling sound of dragon claws on wire mesh. Smarty pants dragon had made a beeline to where the screen was today, and scaled it all the way up to the shelf it was resting on! Here's what I saw...

"Hah! You think you can keep ME down? Think again!"

So I'm thinking that dragons are definitely smarter than some people give them credit for... Figment clearly remembered the screen, went looking for the screen, and replicated yesterday's feat (though climbing onto today's shelf was definitely harder than yesterday, as it was at an angle).

Right now, having been returned to his cage, Figment is now on his highest climbing branch... and I swear I can hear him humming the theme from "The Jeffersons" - I'm moving on up (moovin' on up...) To the top (mooovin' on up)... To a de-luxe apartment in the sky..."
