Glass surfing

Postby Victorm010101 » Sun Oct 21, 2018 10:48 am

My bearded dragon is in a 75 gallon pvc enclosure. All his temps are correct, measured with digital thermometer/hygrometer and a temp gun, his substrate is paper towel, he gets his daily bugs and salad and his scheduled supplements. He gets short baths twice a week. His lights are off 12 hours a day. He gets water by a dropper. His uvb is a reptisun 24" t5 tube and he can get within approx 8 inches of it. He has yearly fecal exams and check ups.
Problem is he tries to surf the plexiglass like crazy. Idk if I take him out too much or what. I usually take him out 30-40 minutes a day.

He probably just wants out to explore. Taking him out of the tank is fine (and I encourage it). I set up portable basking lights in my house so my dragon can roam freely when I'm home. Just make sure he is in a safe area when he's out so he can't get stuck anywhere or eat any small bits off the floor etc. They also tend to really enjoy sitting in window sills and looking outside.
