When They see their reflection

Postby ArcticWolf3049 » Sun May 17, 2020 1:45 pm

Today,
I went to feed Kayda (my baby beardie) some live crickets right?? Well long story short she only ate 2... Wanna know why?! Cause every day when it's time to eat I give her one cricket at a time, and she just sits there and stares at the terrarium glass... The only time Kayda moves is when the cricket is right in front of her/his face!! She/he does this because she sees the reflection of herself in the glass!! It's so annoying!! I move her just a little so she can see the cricket but she doesn't move to the cricket just back to her reflection.... Is my baby a born weirdo? Or maybe just a fashion model cause she won't eat if twin is in her view.... I'll snap some pics next feeding, it's hilarious and very dumb when she attacks the glass.... ;)

You can get rid of the reflection by putting up some newspaper wrapping paper magazine pages -- outside of the glass --- sides and back or where needed

Hello Artic Wolf3049, I wanted to check in and see how your bearded dragon was doing. Did you try the suggestion with the newspaper yet? I wouldn't call their natural instincts or behaviors annoying or dumb. Probably just a bit confusing to you at this time. One of the most valuable aspects of bearded dragon care is the proper habitat set-up and proper feeding routines. As someone who came from a different pet species world, it still took learning, work and dedication.
