Hatchling waving

I pulled my hatchling out of its enclosure about 10 minutes ago for some sunlight on my arm and to get it used to me. Just a part of our regular handling.

When I put my hand back in the enclosure it readily jumped off my hand on to the substrate.

It then became the most exploratory it’s been since I got it - it’s been about a week since I got it in exacrly an hour or so.

It came up to the glass and started watching my dog and my fish, and me - not the typical glass surfing until as I write this.

It then began to wave at me.

It’s not frantic glass surfing? More exploratory - what could this mean?

As I finish writing this he jumped up his tree under the lights and started waving at me again?

I’m not worried - just curious.

Could it be a digestive thing like my other post? He’s also scratching us head against the log again too.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
