Changed everything I could think of, still glass surfing?

Postby Chenpoes » Sun Feb 16, 2020 5:25 pm

My beardie has been glass surfing for the longest time, and just won't stop, probably for years, but I was told when she first started doing it that it was normal and never thought to second guess, however lately I've been seeing things saying it means somethings up. Initially I thought it was the size of her tank, so I saved up and upgraded her to a 4x2x2ft tank, then I thought it was her lights, so I switched those out, changed up her diet, tried to give her more in tank deco (not too crowded though- she has plenty of space to move around but also things to climb on and hide in), but nothing seems to work. She's currently on half napkins half tile substrate, gets fed fresh fruits and veggies once a day and dubia roaches once or twice a week with other various bugs on occasion (she gets a hornworm or waxworm every now and then as a treat). She's out with me for at least 30 minutes every day, and I let her free roam around the room pretty much every time I'm in it. I don't think its her reflection, because she 'surfs' on every wall of her enclosure, including the solid ones. Should I be taking her to the vet, or do some beardies just do this without anything wrong?

Sounds like she likes being out of the viv. Some dragons would rather be out in a bigger space and, others don't mind. How long do you let her free rome in your room? Maybe extend her time and see what happens.
The wonderful world of bearded dragons is a magical land of mystery, enchantment, cuddles, love and, worry! A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon, guess again. You are now a slave!!!
