How Do You Know If A Bearded Dragon Is Stressed

Being exposed to certain factors in their immediate environment can cause stress in many types of pet reptiles. Stress can become a potent fuel for display of undesirable behavior. Being quick to spot signs that indicate your pet is under stress is very important so measures can be undertaken to address the problem.

Bearded dragons that are stressed can engage in glass surfing or glass dancing. It’s when they appear to be rubbing their belly on the glass walls while paddling their feet. Their skin also takes on a dark coloration or turns black. If you notice that your beardie’s beard has turned black, try to think about potential stressors that your pet has been exposed to recently. Some important stressors that can affect beardies include being moved to a new tank, the arrival of a new beardie, change in the location of their enclosure, or when their human leaves home for a few days.
