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.

Surgery, Blood transfusion, Internal bleeding (potentially) not confirmed, Sudden onset anemia, potential aneurism etc. Echo stayed in the hospital overnight and the dr did not have good news when she called to update me today. I’m not 100% sure that I made the right decision by coming to pick her up (against what the dr recommended) but she was in far worse condition since having dropped her off. Help! 2nd opinion!?
The basking side of my tank isn't getting up to the suggested 100degrees. Does that mean I need to get a new basking light?
does her poop look healthy?
In your perspective does my baby bearded dragon look healthy or unhealthy? Does she look bloated? she is active and eats very well also she is in her basking spot all day
