Baby beardie standing up...??

Postby SarahHardy » Thu Jun 14, 2018 12:23 am

A couple days ago my friend was over and I told him he could hold my bearded dragon, Mushu. I told him to try and feed some arugula to Mushu and suddenly he stood up on his hind legs and just started eating! :lol: I've never seen this before, and he didn't seem angry at all. Just stood up and munched on his lettuce for a good 3 minutes. Whenever I look this up the only answers I can find are about standing up and leaning against the glass or standing up when they run away. Has anyone ever seen this before and does anyone know if it means anything? Thank you!

Lol that is adorable. :love10: Daisy will do that sometimes to get to a superworm. She uses her tail as a counter balance and then stands up. It's adorable when she does it and even more adorable when your beardie does it. :D He/she also looks so happy about it. :love10: :love10:
