Stressed

I don't get it. He was chilling in his tank, he had just eaten, the kids were being quiet, all was calm. All of a sudden, he was glass surfing hard. So I reached in to pick him up and he started using my hand as a ledge to try to glass surf higher and he was moving a million miles a minute. And when I got him out, he was clutching to me for dear life and super duper dark under his chin and belly. When my boyfriend got him so I could get him a treat from the fridge (because who doesn't like to eat to feel better😅) he hid as far as he could in his beard, head down and everything. I came back into the room, waxworms in tow and while he ate the two little ones I offered, I laid back with him on my chest and he's basically frozen in fear.? I don't understand whyyyyy.

Is his habitat in a window? Maybe something outside scared him. 2 out of 3 of mine are terrified of helicopters. (They buzz around my house all day, i live in vegas :()

It is but it's covered and the blinds are closed. He usually glass surfs when he poops and is desperate to get away but he didn't do anything. He's okay now, I think. He looks exhausted now, poor guy.

I did take him fully outside earlier, but the time between that and his freak out was like two hours.

My boyfriends parents have a small dog but she never comes in here. It was relatively quiet in our room and he just lost it. He's okay now, sorta. He's been mostly laying on his rock.
Is this the same dragon that is not eating?

Yeah, but it wasn't that he wasn't really eating, just less. But that resolved itself. He chowed down yesterday and today.
Kids could be stressing him out --- I would kinda keep them away till he starts eating better has time to acclimate to the tank and surroundings --- and the stress marks have gone away

At first, he had constant stress marks but after his first week, they're gone for the most part and he's pretty used to the kids and stuff. Every now and then, specifically when it's bed time, he gets real dark, or if somethings scared him.

He's definitely been eating better. In a week, he's gained 10 grams (total of about 55 grams) and is right at a foot long, which is a nice uptick in the one month we've had him.

He is still young and learning his world, it's untelling what scared him. He should become more bold as time goes on.

He's definitely bolder than he thinks. He thinks he can jump a couple feet from my leg to a closed tank and make it in.😂😂

He's a weenie. He gets spooked by his own tail, I swear.😂

He's definitely a baby. I pull him out every night and he waits patiently to be put on my shoulder so he can crawl into the crook of my neck for snuggles.


I wanted to ask, I know food shouldn't be bigger than the space between their eyes. Is that length or width.? Or does that even matter.?

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

substrate looks scrumptious
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?
