In Reply to: New cage setups... posted by ZackD. on May 04, 2003 at 22:55:27:
Beardies grow very accustomed to thier surrounding. When you change it, you put them through stress (not life threatening, but stress nonetheless). What your beardie does is normal. It takes my little diva about a week to act normal again. I just recently changed his beddding (finally went to wheat bran). He didn't want to touch it. He even slept on his basking log so he wouldn't touch it. He did this for about a week. Yours will get used to it to.
:Do any of your beardies act strange when you rearange there stuff after you clean there cage?
:Well I recently changed his setup, proped the rock on the side so he would have a place to hide, put the heating lamp over the piece of slate I have in there because I figured it absored heat for his belly better then the branch I used to have in there.
:Well anyway I put him in there, under his lamp so he would know "this is your new basking spot" He look around, started pacing in front of his glass, ran around licked EVERYTHING in the cage, sat on the branch that was his old basking spot, probibly wondering why he wasent geting warm, ran around, licked some more stuff, then started trying to scale the walls of his cage. Well I decided to take him out, will he eventually warm up to the new setup? Or should I restore it to its old arangment?
