Chien is obsessed with his uvb bulb?!

Postby Xanelic » Sun Jan 20, 2019 9:13 am

Since chien is going through his hormonal stages (glass surfing, bobbing his head) he always tries to go near the uvb.. When I say near, I mean he CLIMBS it and does these weird push ups on it.

The uvb is 9inches away from his lamp... I don't understand why and how he does it..

(Now that i think about it, should this be in behavior?)

My girl is going through a similar thing, hormonal and just going crazy trying to get to the UV. I can’t say for certain why they do it but I think she might not be getting enough rays or the light is bothering her eyes (I have it positioned on the side). I think so long as he isn’t hurting himself he will be fine, that’s how I handle things with my beardie anyway. They do weird stuff all the time, best just to let them get on with it. However, you could always try moving the bulb or getting a stronger one. I can’t think of much else it could be. Hopefully it’s a phase that passes for both our beardies.
