Dragon wants out all the time

Postby zye1984 » Thu May 07, 2020 5:57 pm

Hi there! It's been a while since I've posted here.

Izzy is pretty healthy, but still fat.

She's being a weirdo again though! Generally, if she has to poo, she starts bopping her nose on the glass. Now she's doing that all the time, wanting to get out.

Nothing has changed in her enclosure like temp or anything like that. She's not gravid since she isn't digging and, following my vet's example, no firm lumps in her gut if I feel around in there.

I doubt she is brumating because she isn't lathargic in the enclosure. Once she's out she crawls around for a bit then goes under a desk to nap, most likely because of the cold linoleum floor.

After the nap, I can put her back, she basks a teeny bit or goes in the cubby hole, and is hunky dory. She has to be out a good while or else she'll just do the same thing.

Is she just being a spoiled brat because I'm working at home and in my room all day? She's always been a weird one; she's never really brumated or was gravid, and I've had her for years!

Think just being a spoiled brat lol. Ours is the same lately, he had always been like that at weekends or when we home and comes up to the glass wanting out. We let him out, runs around for ages then usually climbs up the sofa to chill on his pillow. Once we put him back he is happy to bask and relax. With being home all day everyday he seems to demand this every day now lol.

Hah! I see you! Lemme out!

On a second note, she is not coming out of her cubby today and is napping! Maybe she IS brumating! I dunno, she's so weird. I'll keep an eye on her. I'll also lower the temp a little so if she is brumating it will be more comfortable.

If you have no way of knowing how she behaved when you weren't working at home and in your room all day, then I'd say it's very likely.

EDID (Each Dragon Is Different) so some do behave differently when we're around than when we aren't--others don't. Some might say she has you trained well! :laughhard:

Generally, if she has to poo, she starts bopping her nose on the glass.

Mine does that too. Considering what it usually smells like, can you blame them? Who wouldn't try to get away from that, or do it someplace else! :lol:

My water skink Gutzy does that kind of thing every evening , it's her telling "I'm awake , and I want you (me) to pay attention and maybe talk to me and give me more of those yummy crickets". She's very spoilt, turns her nose up at mealworm lavae and pupae, and isn't very fussed with BSFL , but loves mealworm beatles , BSFs and crickets.

Lizards are creatures of habit, they a routine and this kind of behavior in my observation usually means either
> I am hungry and you need to feed me.
> my water dish is soiled, or empty , or the water is too warm.
> I've pooed , kindly remove the horrible smelly thing.
> it's too hot in here.
> I want to come out ( and have fun time / have some people time )
> I want you to talk to me ( pay some attention to me ).

@kingofnobbys
Izzy honestly couldn't care less about being around me, which is pretty disappointing. She doesn't fear or hate me, just kinda tolerates me. Unless she's really tired, the first thing she wants to do is walk away.
