Does anyone else's beardie get really, really active after having a poo? Figment goes NUTS - scampering around his cage, glass surfing, climbing up and down his "mountain" and his climbing branch. I took him out for floor time today after his daily mess, and he's been scrabbling everywhere - trying to climb the walls, even! I call these his "lizard zoomies." Does anyone else do the same?

He probably wants out either to explore or get away from the poop. My dragon does go through phases in which he is very hyper too. Runs between rooms and surfs the walls of the house. It comes and goes with the seasons though =)

Hiccup he is 4 and Blaze is 3
Both of my dragons -- Hiccup wants out after he poops and starts wall surfing- today he pooped so he wanted out- I brought him out and he was happy -- Blaze does the crazy thing all over the tank - havent let him out yet - he is still pretty young to let loose - and not as big - I m afraid I will loose him under the furniture - he has been out in the past and ran all over the LR but there were two of us so it was easier

I thought it might be to get away from his poo, too... not that I don't clean it up promptly (especially now that I'm working in the room all day), but I think it might be logical, on an instinctual level: dragon poo reeks, so it would be best to get far away from the source of the stink before a predator comes calling to see what smells. :)

And speaking of which... time to clean up on aisle 4!

Before, after, once or twice a day for the heck of it... AFAIK, it's just his active period. Zoomies might be an apt analogy.

At times I've considered that; OTOH, there are times he'll run right through it. Vast majority of the time, he'll hit the paper towel, but every so often, he'll do it up top, or on a step... He's hit a few planters, his granite boulder... :dontknow:

Maybe it's how the mood strikes him... :laughhard:

All three of our dogs (and many more I've heard about) considered cat turds a culinary delicacy. :roll:

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
