Never.

The best approach is to keep them well supported and make sure leaps or falls from any dangerous height onto any hard unforgiving surfaces (like uncarpeted floors, tiled floors, lino covered floors, concrete, and bare sand or bare earth) are prevented.

Yes, I do the infinity staircase with him, or a hand wall when it gets too close. My reaction time is incredibly quick, he hasn't fallen yet, but danm sure does he try. I am looking forward to the time when he stops trying. It's stressful. I always support his body legs even as much of his tail as I can. But he loves to just randomly turn and try to jump no matter height

I read the title and died laughing. Mine will do the same thing no matter how far the drop is. I guess that's just how it is with them! :D

Is that what it means when they get those dark lines? He doesn’t seem to do it much anymore, only really when I first got him.

At two months old, mine would take dives off her basking log into the glass or onto something else. As she grew, she stopped that... but will still jump off me, chairs, couch, bed, etc if no one's preventing her. She's been to the vet once when I wasnt careful enough, ended up being one of the healthiest he's seen some how o.o

Everyone always says that, I wonder if vets just say that lol. So yours never stopped jumping off you ? ***** lol. Mine did take a pretty big leap out of my hands onto hard floor, and has calmed down on the jumping since. He still runs tho

Probably, but everything still checked out so I wont question it lol ... Mine is going to be 10 months on june 25th. She'll sleep on me later in the day, past 7-8 or so maybe. Otherwise its run run run, and if theres a distance to the floor she doesnt care.

Kingofnobbys is a vet here, cared for many dragons, he said they never stop. There's no hope.

Also, dark stomach lines... stress marks. Common after relocation. Mine still occasionally gets it while basking.
