Smarty Pants Dragon Loves Climbing

Postby ComicBookMama » Fri Jul 03, 2020 1:25 pm

Yesterday, I let Figment have some floor time and he discovered the screen lid to his enclosure. He promptly tasted it, tasted it again, then scaled its 36" up to the shelf it was leaning on and sat there, looking quite smug.

Today, I decided to move the screen lid to where it wouldn't be as easy for Figment to get to (I didn't want him climbing and falling - not all the stuff on my shelves is secure). I put him out for his walkabout, and settled in to do some other things in the room... when I hear the scrabbling sound of dragon claws on wire mesh. Smarty pants dragon had made a beeline to where the screen was today, and scaled it all the way up to the shelf it was resting on! Here's what I saw...

"Hah! You think you can keep ME down? Think again!"

So I'm thinking that dragons are definitely smarter than some people give them credit for... Figment clearly remembered the screen, went looking for the screen, and replicated yesterday's feat (though climbing onto today's shelf was definitely harder than yesterday, as it was at an angle).

Right now, having been returned to his cage, Figment is now on his highest climbing branch... and I swear I can hear him humming the theme from "The Jeffersons" - I'm moving on up (moovin' on up...) To the top (mooovin' on up)... To a de-luxe apartment in the sky..."

Love this story! :lol: What a clever dragon! I love that look he gave you after you saw him climb again.
Hoping to hear more stories about Figment and his climbing shenanigans soon :D
Fifa (our bearded dragon) and I say hi! :D

Figment sends greetings to Fifa! His climbing escapades have been much diminished since we got his Zen and sold his screen-topped 40BR, I’m afraid... though he still manages to get into some odd predicaments! The other day I found him perched on a tall, smooth sided box on a shelf that he couldn’t possibly have climbed - and yet, there he was! Dragon of mystery...

:lol: I love this. Charlie is a jumper. He has no fear. One moment he's sitting calmly on my shoulder, the next he's trying to jump to a desk 10 feet away. He also likes jumping back and forth on the two hammocks in his enclosure, but that's small potatoes. This little dude is channeling Evil Knievel. Figment might be descended from other great mountain climbers. Or based on his most recent feat, one of those guys that scales sheer rock faces.

That's awesome :lol: Maybe bearded dragons just spread their wings and fly when people aren't looking :lol: Hope Figment doesn't get into too much trouble though!
