In the wild they mate after brumating, she is probably desperate to find a boyfriend lol. It should pass before to long.

Mine usually does the same thing post brumation (after she gets past her couple of weeks of snapping back into the world) … she gets all wild child like your describing. She hasn’t acted that way after each and every years burmation - but most of them, if that’s any consolation. Not sure, but it’s definitely a thing! Like she will just start marching around the enclosure and restless and all over the place like “ahhhhhh see me hear me ahhhhh” for a while before she levels out - just seems to have to run it’s course with her … but I def feel you on this one! 🙂

OMG if the female is like this...is Rocky going to hump (forgive me everyone) everything in sight?
I have heard about this behavior and understand that we have to let this pass.
While I am hoping I have another year before I have to experience this, I like the idea of letting her out for 2 hours.

The only time i ever saw Zen try to get it on with an inanimate object (i should have just said hump lmao) was he would go after the dogs toys. It was friggen hilarious. He was picky though just the ducks and weasels that where shaped more like a dragon, he ignored the hedge hogs and sheep toys.

thanks everyone for reminding me its normal, for males it's more headbobbing I think she dosent do that or anything close to it just runs around and surfs and isn't eating much.....today checked and she ate her whole salad for the first time in months then had some dubia so I feel better. ....to the guy who said get her out of her tank for 2 hours....she's usually out of the tank for more like a total of 4 to 6 hours a day. she likes to climb over to the bed climb the stack of pillows and lay there staring at the room being the tallest thing there for half the day...or climb on to me and hang there climbing up my shoulders or the back of the couch....we put her back in she basks but once she warms up she's like screw it and goes crazy again jumping off her mountain climbing everything glass surfing untill we take her out and let her run around.... hopefully she will be back to being our lazy potatoe soon

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.
