Mountain Horned Dragons Forum
MHD beating himself up?
hi, i had got a mountain horned dragon almost a year ago. he has been a great pet but lately he has been acting very strange. he wont settle down. he use to be a very chill lizard, able to be handled quite easily. but for the last 2 months or so he has been running around his cage, smacking into the glass and now most of his crest spikes are gone from his actions, along with a horn.
whenever i try to handle him, he becomes much more aggressive, trying to flee. i do not know what has come over him and i believe that it has something to do with a breeding season?
Is there anything I can do? He is still eating, slurps up worms every 3 days or so, hunts crickets, but I cant stand to see him beating himself up like this.
His cage is 3 feet tall, 3 feet wide and 2 feet thick. It’s a custom cage that I built myself. He has plenty of room, branches and hiding areas so I don’t think room is the issue…
