Default My Beardie Constantly tapping the glass!

I have read somewhere that Beardies dont understand the glass that means they cant get out and constantly tap an scratch away to get through or until they get bored, but my Beardie, doesn't stop! (well thats a lie, she sleeps well at night, comes out a few times during the day and basks well) but this morning its been over an hour of her tapping and climbing at the glass. She looks mighty pissed off too! Beard has gone a little black too! If I get her out she is happy just to sit on my hand and look at me. But obviously I can't do this all day!

Normal?

How big is her vivarium?Does she have a background to look at?

I am sure she is just settling in and they are clever and know you will get them out if they look proper sad

How about putting a nice hammock in there?I dont know where you get them but she might like one

Yes you are right, she definitely has me wrapped around her little toe already. It all went quiet so I went to peep in to see her sat on her log, she saw me and came back to the window looking at me with her puppy dog eyes lol.

He viv doesnt have a background no, and hoping to get her a bigger viv at the end of Aug - trying to find someone to make me a nice big one with the false rocks etc. Her beard is back to orange now, so hopefully chilling out a little!

It's been suggested that one reason for glass tapping can be if there is something in theyre viv distressing them, or they can see something outside of the viv distressing them.

Our dragon taps for food and taps when she's had a poo, its like "slave I've poo'd now get it out" .
If all your husbandry is correct, I wouldn't worry too much, it may well just pass .
