Ok so i have been observing something i can't explain with my beardies.

Back story. I have a ferret nation cage on my patio, it's two levels that are seperated and has a solid black plastic tray in the bottom. I put two beardies out in the morning sun, one on each level. They have zero line of sight.
Two of my beardies are in the same room my computer desk is sandwiched between their habitats. I keep a thick towel ovrr the end of one tank. Again zero line of sight.
So what I've been seeing is when i put my male outside with one of my females. Even though there no way he can see her, he will start black bearding and she will start waving.
Once she starts waving he will start bobbing and stomping. She then does her head rolling and he goes crazy, he scrambles all over that cage trying to fet down to her. It doesn't matter which female i put out there same results. It's him and Snicker Doodle i bthe same room. There is 4 foot between their habitats and a towel so no line of sight and i see them doing the same thing there also.
How the heck are they timing these responses to each other so perfectly with no line of sight?
This isn't a one off, its been going on for weeks now.

I believe it’s smell as well. When I first got Shyla Rango couldn’t see her but he knew she was here. Fast forward to now I think they can smell each other on my clothes.

I think beardies are smart all the way around. THere's a YouTube video testing a beardie's cognitive ability...it's not the best but I think based on day to day interactions with our beardies, we witness growth (on many levels, not just physical) and these amazing milestones that make us say WHOA.
