    Bearded Dragon Body Movement?

    Got a new dragon. He is 12 inches long and a little over 4 months old. I just had him out and he was on my chest wiggling his body almost as if he was trying to snuggle up on me. He did it twice and he was completely relaxed and sprawled out when he did it. What does that mean?

    Also sometimes when he is in his cage he'll move his head in all directions looking around extremely fast. Dont know what that means either.

    Any clue to what he is doing?

    Thanks

    Sounds like he likes you! lol
    Right before my beardy goes to sleep she stretches her little arms and legs out like that.
    Sounds like a typical beardy lol, babys are real curious and will look around at anything that moves, basically a sign that he/she is active and most likely healthy

    Babies are constantly on the look out. After all in the wild they would be on everyone's dinner menu!
    As for the wiggling on you, I would guess that it is cold and trying to absorb as much of your body heat as possible. Babies don't have much body mass and so loose heat rapidly.

    Thanks,

    And today Stewie passed some poop that was a little unusual. t was green and stinky as always but at the end of the poop it was clear color with a hint of red/pink. This section of the poop was about a centimeter or 2.

    Any ideas?

    When was the last time he pooped? Sometimes if the urate is really hard (dehydration will do that) then they will strain a bit to get it all out.
    As for the wiggling, mine will do that when he's snuggling into his personal pillow. As the pillow is warmer than I am, it goes along with what Merlin said.
