Female Beardie acting strange

Postby Haidalyn » Tue Mar 26, 2019 4:36 pm

I have a 1 year old female bearded dragon. She is normally very sweet and calm. The past 2 weeks she has been behaving very strangely. She seems agitated and is clawing at the glass in her tank. She doesn't want to be held which is unusual for her. Her appetite seems about normal and her poop is normal as well. I have not switched up anything in her tank and I'm not sure if this is just because it's springtime and mating season or if she is gravid but I do not have any other bearded dragons. Do female bearded dragons in captivity normally get a little crazy in the springtime? Her stomach doesn't seem any bigger than normal so I really don't know if she is gravid or not. Please help

It's likely just hormones and spring fever. This goes away on it's own after a while. Give her some space to run around and burn off energy. If she's digging a lot it may be infertile eggs and building a dig box may be helpful. If she's just being energetic though, it's normal but there isn't a whole lot to do but wait it out.
