Question

Zoey  
My bearded dragon has been acting strange lately. He has been kind of skittish and running away  from me! Usually he's pretty chill but he has making quick movements! Could it be that he is sexually maturing or the season or husbandry? He is almost 9 months and 20in. Please help me!

Answer
Hello, you haven't provided me with very many details. Is he eating strangely? What else is he doing differently? You may be frightening him when you reach into his enclosure. Take a slow approach in with your hand where he can see you. This may help but I still need more details. Any change in his diet or in his enclosure? Have you moved things around?

Expertise

I can answer every question towards the bearded dragon except for questions that deal with sickness and disease. I can answer questions on heating and UV rays, the questions pertaining to food, habitat, bedding, breeding, egg/hatchling care, nature, and attitude are my best. Last, I cannot help you with at home sickness meds, always find a vet within your area. I can answer questions regarding body language and movement. I will try to help you to the best of my ability.

Experience

I have owned bearded dragons for over seven years and have been a breeder for two years. Caring and raising bearded dragons has been a great experience in my life and will continue to play a big role throughout my life.
