So the back story. I got Sinatra back in November. He was skittish with me but not as bad with the girlfriend. He didn't have good line of site into the living room, the sofa blocked his view (he lived in the bottom section of a two tiered habitat). He has become increasingly more skittish of me (still ok with the girlfriend). So I decided to move him out into the dinning room into a habitat that lets him see us moving around thinking maybe that would help him adjust. So below are pics of his first day in the new setup. (He now has a better view out the window which he seems to love). I thought his habitat looked pretty good. Apparently he didn't approve. You be the judge lol. I'm going to post the pics in order from just ready to move in last night to this afternoon.

Maybe it's too soon to judge, OR, there is too much going on all at once for him to process?

I may be assigning human responses to him, but my pets (lizard and dogs) very much responsde to changes in human activity!

Excellent result!
The view from the window is the best gift for any dragon! And the sun's rays will give him a natural IR spectrum.
I think Sinatra will highly appreciate his new home!
Without any doubt.
PS: I see a lot of greenery in the second and third photo.
Was that a "fireworks" from salad in honor of moving day? 😆

That was breakfast lol. He up rooted every plant, turned over his greens and his bugs, dug all the substrate up. He WRECKED the place, then took a nap lol.

I did not immediately understand the chronology from the photo.
Now I understand - this is the chronology of destruction 😆
I think Sinatra will approve his new house sooner or later.
Foxy's terrarium is also located in the dinning room and he really likes it - he always sees everyone and he likes to watch how we do everything around him:)

All my other dragons do as well, I think not being able to see us is why he had become more skittish. Hopefully in a few days/weeks he will calm down.
I don't mind if he just don't like me, but i can't stand the thought of him being scared all the time.

No i bought him for genetics, he is going to be my sire when he is a bit older. He is a hypo, het trans, het zero blue bar dunner. He also has a very high concentration of orange, he should make some nice hatchlings 🙂

Yes, I remember you told me about breeding, but I didn't know how you got him.
I think that moving to a new place will allow him to overcome all his fears.

He agreed to keep rearranging it lmao. He piled every artificial plant in there into a pile again and was napping on them when i got home.
But honestly he seems happier, he seems to really like having a view out the window. I was worried it would stress him, but he seems a little less jumpy now.

This is excellent!
I am very glad that there are improvements and Sinatra is gradually becoming happier.
It was a worthwhile idea to give him a view from the window.
And I think he'll stop piling plants once he gets over the stress of the moving.

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
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg. Now only one egg an its been 10 hours.shouldiBworried
