    Default Zorro jumps to the heat lamp?

    Hey hey! Today when I got home from work I saw that Zorro had jumped up at the lights, he has done it for two weeks now and I'm wondering if this is normal? I have purchased protection but even that he tore down. He had a little bit of blood on the nose but nothing serious, and I'm a little worried that he does not stop.

    A lot of Tegus do this. What kind of enclosure is he in ? How does his nose look like ? Please make sure it doesn't get infected .

    It could be that his enclosure is too small, he wants out, he's hungry....tegus are pretty active lizards.
