Hi

I picked up two females yesterday both 18 months old and have always been together. they had a three hour drive home they survived well and seemed to settle down after few crickets.

They have been okay this morning although we have changed the sand to aspen as the sand was a bit dirty. Aspen was recommended by my local breeder.

What I'm wondering is they are currently in the kitchen where mother in law is cooking, and they seem to be jumping up and down at the glass, is this normal?


They have a bowl of fresh veg etc and have had two locusts each and a few crickets as they never had much yesterday.

Any advice I'd be grateful

Beardies will quite often jump at the glass and generally "glass surf". Probably normal. High energy levels and activity is quite probably a good sign of health also.

Are you aware of the risks of housing two dragons together?

Hi thanks for the response yes I'm aware of the risks of having two together and I'm just trying to source another viv should I need it.

They have had a relaxed morning but again have started to surf the glass if that's what you call it, they've been really lively for the past hour is this normal I beginning to stress as I'm new to this so I'm not sure if it's something they are not happy with, also they don't seem to be touching there veggies, but will eat live food if I give it.....

Again any advice I'd be grateful for.

Are they white under their bellies or do they have lots of black markings? Glass surfing is pretty standard behavior.

They hate change and usually take around a week to settle properly and start feeding.

If I have added the pictures correctly, you can clearly see dark markings on my beardies belly, this is where we have just moved house and he was stressed out. On the other picture of him on his hammock he is nice and white showing he is happy.

If they are nice and white and clean looking underneath I wouldn't worry about the glass surfing. If they have the dark dirty looking markings maybe look into your lights and temp ect.
