How To Tell if a Beardie is Going to Go to the Bathroom

Postby TylerBlue » Fri Jul 12, 2019 7:41 am

Is there any behavior that beardies display before going poo? Any "warning signs?" Do they lift their tails or anything like that?

my beardie will run back and forth along the front of his cage quite annoyingly before finding the "perfect spot" to poo. pay attention to what your beardies individual behavior is over time, and their patterns :)

Yep … watch for their bum to go up , that said , my Cleo has decided she doesn't like pooing in the rearing tub, and saves it up to give to me as a present (on my shirt....)

Hence I keep a sheet of paper towel handy when she's out for qt and the moment I see her bum go up, the paper goes under her.

Caesar always goes at the same place in the rearing tub. And seems to wait for me remove the soiled paper towels before going to the toilet (within minutes !!).

Yeah, that's the cue I look for. Gotta act fast though if they're on you, at least with mine. It's like the 3 second warning :D
