Hiding and hissing

Postby Ktkiller » Sat Feb 24, 2018 9:15 am

Hi there! My bearded dragon just started shedding. He's usually very docile and loves being handled, never hisses or bites. But since he started shedding he's been hiding away in his little cave and when I go near him he hisses at me, he still lets me pet him but will hiss before hand. Is this normal? All his temps and everything in his tank is correct.

It's fairly common for shedding to cause them to be a bit more irritable than normal. His behavior should return to normal after the shed is done so I'd give him some space for now.
