 Need help! strange frilled dragon behavior

My frilled is about a year old he/she has always been a pretty good lizard eats insects mice and some greens. The last time I put a mouse in archer started biting the side of a branch, since then archer hasnt been eating as much and acts very scared. I recently moved him to a bigger cage and he still acts the same (he bites random objects aggressively and even rips them around like a dog) caught him eating some substrate and even tried to eat a twig today. His cage is 3 feet tall I use a mercury vapor bulb during the day and I keep water in the cage and mist him daily, any information helps! Also archer never ate the last mouse so I took it out, just been feeding him Insects when he will eat

I think you gave the clue early on, about a year old. Frillies seems to change personality as they move into adulthood some, becoming more wild some, or so it seems to me. When you consider they likely get their biological breeding signals around adulthood, that may help to explain some of your observed behaviors.

 Need help! strange frilled dragon behavior

Greeting!
Could you help me?My bad boy was eating some substrate too when i have put him in the new vivarium.I have got my frilled lizard 4 days before...in the first 3 days my frilled lizard was so happy.This little guy ate 3 times a day and moved a lot in the vivarium.I sprayed 1 times a day to make wet the floor.I have put even a water bowl under the basking spot.When i sprayed today, my frilled dragon scratched his nose to the wood and ground.And do not eat nothing today.Also the little guy is inactive, not like before.What’s wrong with it?I have 60W basking spot, i have cheramic bulb to make 30Celsius at the cooler side/at night minimum 25C.I have 12% UVB tube and 110x60x91 vivarium.i’m really getting afraid cause i wanna give the best for this little guy.I tried to make the best vivarium but some woods on the way,i’m gonna get it next week and i also have ordered rain system to make rain every day for 2 min

KemLanh, you should learn basic posting etiquette. Post your own topic, don’t try to hijack others.

You give some details but not enough to give any certain answers, not enough details to even guess at hardly, most problems start with the container, giving complete details on composition, contents, etc helps a lot.

For a WAG answer, I’ll guess its the container/conditions.
