Weird Behavior

Postby joef » Fri Feb 17, 2017 8:57 am

So this morning my dragon Darwin started glass surfing a lot. When I opened up his cage, he started running as fast as he could toward my door. I couldn't figure out why, so I got him back in his cage (after he jumped off me and landed on his back) and now all he wants to I sleep under his log. I gave him carrots because they're his favorite and he didn't eat them. I saw that he was dehydrated so I sprayed him down and I'm going to give him a bath. Is there anything wrong with him? Did landing on his back give him trauma?

About 2 feet 8 inches. He's jumped from higher but never fallen on his back.

Most likely he was just scared from this incident. Give him some room, but if he doesn't return to normal or seems to be in pain in the next few days, you might want to get some x-rays done, though this shouldn't be necessary
