hi guys i have a 5 month old blue bar who in the last few days has been trying to escape at the bottom of its viv any advice would be great thanks
Hi Andrew,
There are tons of reasons this could be happening.

Male or Female?

I have one that wants to be out free ranging all the time. When I walk in, he almost throws himself down to get out to me. Will he come to you if you open the cage or just try to leg it?

It could also be something he's trying to get away from so it would help if you can post pics of his setup and fill in the form as it could be a husbandry issue. If it's a she, it could also be looking to lay even though only 5 months.

Hi Andrew,

We need answers, even if you have to type out individually. Also add pictures by clicking on 'attach files' and choosing the images to upload.

I'm just starting early shifts at work but there's plenty of great folk here that have experience that can help you out if I don't get straight back to you, but all of us need the basics to work with.

You got there Andrew. I'm in my pit, up at 0300. If you can get some pics as well please. There are a couple of things I'd like to clarify but now isn't a good time, I need Zzz's.

OUCH THAT HURT NOT ALL OF US WORK WITH COMPUTERS I BUILD RESERVOIRS SO NO NEED FOR A KEYBOARD LOL
Just giving you a hard time. Internet sarcasm goes on deaf ears sometimes...
So your only concern is he wants to come out of his cage? Looks like everything you're doing is good so far. The night drop of 50 is a little low for a Panther in my opinion. Maybe you just have a friendly guy who just wants to come out? Maybe there's an issue with the Viv? We definitely need pictures if you can post them.
