My boy loves to come out and run all around on me. He climbs up my chair, and stares at the wall. He will turn around, walk to the other side of the chair. Then turn around and walk to the other side of the chair. Sometimes, he'll climb to the chair's armrest and looks down. He also climbs up on my tray table. Whenever I pick him up to go outside, he wants to go straight into the bathroom and into the shower stall to run around there. Then he plants himself and looks right up at the shower head, waiting for his 'shower'. He does it every day. Sometimes, not every day.
I have a dog kennel that he can use and run around. He also climbs up the sides of the kennel. I tried to put a harness on him and he didn't like it. So, free roam it is in a safe dog kennel or the shower pan. He never loved baths. Now, all of a sudden, he wants a bath. I don't want him to get an RI or get sick. He sulks. I'm not going to give him a bath tomorrow or the next few days. I'll try some other exercises.
I could let him sit in the shower pan dry and see what he does. Chances are, he won't do what he does when the water's on.

What types of exercise do you do for your dragons?

Beardie name(s)
Rocky, Ruby
I let Rocky run back and forth from the window, across my bed to another window.
Rocky runs around the floor- under the bed (it's empty) the to the other room.
There's a lot of beardie-proofing you have to do then vacuuming/sweeping. In addition, you have to keep an eye on him. It's a lot -
I do all this and he still runs off to another room. Now he wanders to stairs so I had to limit him to one room.

Honestly, at times I think glass surfing/running back and forth throwing tantrums should count as exercise!
The more they are out of the enclosure the more they don't want to go back-

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
Swordtail has been doing a whole lot of "Lizard yoga" lately
Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
