my bearded dragon has been glass surfing, but i can’t upgrade his viv atm due to a few reasons (covid19, no space, costs too much) so i thought maybe giving him more to do would help. anyone have any ideas? he has a couple logs, a hide, and a hammock atm. any suggestions are appreciated!

Do you ever let him roam around the house or sit with him outside? Those would be my first choices.

Rearrange his "stuff". Go slow so he doesn't stress. If he takes to it, mix things up.
Every time I've done it, Z spends a couple days checking everything out again, climbing & exploring. :wink:

so i rearranged some stuff, he doesn’t seem stressed, quite the opposite, actually. he immediately started eating which surprised me as he’s a pretty picky eater. i think he’s enjoying it! thanks for your help guys, hopefully this will help him stop glass surfing.

IME, I think some glass surfing isn't/shouldn't be too disconcerting. ZᴀRDᴏZ gets an "active period" lasting around a half hour, right around noon every day that generally includes some surfing, trying to pull the doors open, beating up plants, exploring his enclosure, and general running around/hellraising. After the half hour, he settles down and gets back to his regular job--basking. :lol:

In this context, I see it as exercise/blowing off a little energy/steam.
If it became obsessive, or he spent hours a day at it, yes, I'd probably be concerned. YMMV

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
