Beardie is acting a little odd..

Postby rhaegaldrogo » Sun Feb 23, 2020 10:05 am

Hi guys. So my 5 month old beardie, Maximus, has been acting a little strange today and I'm a little concerned

He's been sitting in the same.spot pretty much all day, which he sometimes does when about to go into shed,.so that could be just that

He did this weird thing that kind of looked a little like star gazing. Front claws on a branch, looking up (but not directly upwards), tail arched up. It didn't last for long and he only did that once

He hasn't touched his veggies today. He's usually a quite a voracious eater and will literally try eat anything XD . He still is eating insects though

He also did another odd behaviour. I have a picture of it below. On a particular rock, looking kinda upwards. He did it a few times, just this one time in the picture he almost fell backwards

His poop looks normal,. although a little smaller.than usual. Should I be worried?

More recent--and closer--pictures of him and his enclosure, please.
Has Kerrie or anyone gone over your lighting with you?

I agree that is a odd position - what are you using for your lighting? UVB brand and bulb please? And if he is doing this often I would say something is going on w/ the UVB - I am not sure - if you can go over the set up telling us what your using for lighting and basking temps etc how your taking them we can narrow it down- are you giving calcium on his bugs or veggies

I've never seen him do that before, this is a first. The pic of him doing that is just a few hours ago now.

Uvb is Acrcadia 12%, which is at the back of the vivarium. Heat lamp is an exo terra 75 watt. There's a few areas on his r0ck that are a little too hot, but he adjusts accordingly so I don't think that's the issue
Yes I'm giving him calcium and multivitamins.

That is normal if they have extra water to excrete it--- the Arcadia is 12-15 inches from basking decor? He looks good-- I would just keep an eye on him that pose may have been a one time thing- if he continues to do odd things like stargazing flipping over God forbid then I would get concerned- that pose could of been a fluke thing-

Maximus hasn't done any standing on his hind legs or anything today, and has eaten veggies. But he's still acting odd. He's running around his vivarium like crazy, scratching to get out on the wood and the glass. Any idea why he might be acting like this?
