bearded dragon using feet to scratch head

Postby mulanandkylie » Sun May 26, 2019 10:51 pm

i’ve seen this on youtube before of a bearded dragon using its back leg and foot to scratch its head and i wanted to know if it was normal? i just saw my bearded dragon do this for the first time but i am wondering if it has something to do with her shedding? she just started and she has some shed on the top of her head that just started coming off.

Hello,

Yes, they do this on a regular basis when their head or face area is going to shed. Or, at least
our male does this. I think it's a pretty normal behavior also. It is pretty cute when they do use
their back foot to scratch their head.
