Baby beardie thinks he's Superman!

Postby Matty06 » Wed Sep 25, 2019 8:30 am

So my son's baby beardie (10 weeks old) has decided that jumping down from his basking spot is preferable to taking the ramp down. His basking spot is 10 inches above the tile flooring of his tank! It seems like quite a ways down and onto a hard surface. The three times I've seen him do it, I've been watching on a webcam so I can't stop him! I just hold my breath and hope he's okay. Each time he's trotted right off...seeming none the worse for wear.

Is this normal? Should I do anything to prevent it? I'm assuming he knows what he's doing but it has me a little worried.

It's ok as long as he is not hurt but maybe you can put something soft like a towel there just in case

Thanks! I'll have to pad the perimeter for him.
