The craziest thing just happened today, my beardy is around 6-7 months old and super active and aggressive towards mirrors or any other reptile in my house, btw he's a male. Normally its normal for a beardie to be aggressive at mirrors and maybe towards other reptiles but this is what's weird. Today I took him out for like the 3rd time today and was just playing with him on my bed but.... As I laid my head down next to him he crawled up my head and head bobbed on my head!!!! At first I was like oh wow that's cute and kinda hurts but then I realized what he just did! DID HE JUST ASSERT DOMINANCE over me? Anyways I was wondering if this is normal and has that ever happened to anyone? Also he does the head bob like every day at my snakes cage which is like 5 feet away but my snake is never out and he has never actually seen him so I don't know why he head bobs at the cage maybe he smells him? but its a snake normally beardies only do that to other beardies? So just looking for answers he might just be a super dominant beardie, who knows. I might post a video if there's a lot of comments of his behavior he pretty much does it everyday like a routine. And yes I know aggression and mirrors can stress a beardie out and he is fine eventually he gives up and thinks he asserted dominance that day and continues his life besides I monitor him and the mirror is not even near his cage!

Ha how funny. Well, he's in charge now. Only way for you to reassert your dominance is to bite his ear. Good luck.

He might enjoy a cat tree, that could be cool. I bet he'll like climbing it.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
