Licking things?

My baby keeps licking everything. It's pretty quick, just sort of, taps things with his tongue. I've seen him do it to the logs he basks on, and even a cricket once (he wasn't trying to eat it from what I could see... Just wanted to touch it with his tongue???)
Is this normal? Am I missing something? Is something wrong with him?

Yep, that's just curiosity. They explore by tasting things. That's a good reason to keep small bits cleaned up off of floors when they are out and about and a good reason to use a solid substrate or one that isn't as likely to harbor harmful bacteria.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
