Sunny Twitches Only After Being Misted Recently

Postby Jf123 » Tue Apr 16, 2019 7:01 pm


My bearded dragon, Sunny, has has been twitching after she is misted recently. It is only her back legs that twitch and it is only after being misted. I am wondering if this is an early sign of MBD, or if she just doesn't like to be misted?

Additionally, this time her back left leg stayed in this awkward position for a while after she was misted. She is eating ferociously and her UVA/UVB light is only four months old. If anybody has recomendations for a new light please let me know!

She is currently about 11 months old, and 15 inches long. Her diet is primarily composed of collard greens and mustard greens, and dusted crickets twice a week (20-25 at a time). The crickets are dusted in both calcium and vitamin D3.

Thanks so much for the help. [Click image to enlarge]

My guess is that she just doesn't like the feeling of being misted and is twitching in response rather than a more serious issue like MBD. I'd stop misting her.
