 Sudden aggression??

despite the lack of people here..im gonna post! just recently(about a week ago) my female pale agama suddenly became aggressive...she’s never been like this beofre but everytime i go near her in the tank or hold her she freaks out and puffs her throat up and tries to bite...also i noticed a change in her posture....usually she is low profile always stickign herself on something hiding...and now she has been sticking her tail straight up in the air......just wondering what the heck is going on:P my male doesnt do that..he hasnt changed much
they are in a 30 gallon in a desert set up etc...lets say a bearded dragon temp and set up lol


oh and had them since May

Do you know how old they are? It could be that she’s gravid or has laid eggs. Try cleaning out the cage and checking corners and hide boxes.

Aw wow! They are gorgeous!!! It kinda makes me sad that I never got pictures of my baby. D:
She might be wild caught. Most animals that haven’t been bought from a specific breeder every time are usually wild caught. I’m almost 99% sure that my agama was wild caught. You couldn’t even bribe him with silkworms to sit still. :P
Though depending on how you raise them, sometimes it doesn’t matter if they’re wild caught. My iguana, Diamond was almost definitely wild caught(he even has the broken tail) and he thinks he’s a lapdog. He cuddles with ANYTHING. That includes my cat, my sister’s Ball Python, random visitors to my house, blankets, and the occasional stuffed animal. :D

my male acted like a stoner...very lazy. Im starting to wonder if it’s a gender thing. I have a pair of Toad Headed Agamas and my male is lazy where as my female is active. As for them, my male passed last year...my female is now with my dad 7 hours away. This is a scary old thread lmao
