new aggressive behavior

Postby emmaandollie » Thu Jan 21, 2021 3:00 pm

hi, my bearded dragon is about five months old and i’ve had him for about a month. he has always been so sweet (once he got used to me), but the past two days he has been running away when i try to pick him up and opening his mouth at me. today he bit me for the first time. he he always eaten good but today wouldn’t eat any crickets. he just finished shedding for the first time since i’ve had him if that helps. thank you!

Could be crabby from the shedding- but the UVB and basking temps in the tank have everything to do w/ their behavior and over all health ---- NO COILS NO COLORED BULBS and temps need to be taken w/ a digital probe thermometer

Patience then -- is your UVB properly placed as well --- the T 5's and T 8's have certain distances and placement for them --- keep working w/ him he needs to learn to trust you
