IT does happen... which is the reason why people suggest against using substrate... as they do get curious and sometimes ingest the wood.. which can cause impaction among other things... ID say as long as he cant actually get a piece of the bark off and eat it... I dont see how it can be too detrimental?
well thank you.. i just have to watch him very closly when hes out side. but he loves it too much to stop..
another thing... when i do put him back in his cage he runs for the exit to get out.. and its almost always a struggle to get him back in... is this him being friendly, wanting freedom, or what? i know people say they shouldnt really be handled but my babycomes to me when i put my hand in the cage and then doesnt want to go back in.. i think he is bored with his home or something.
yes he is probably just exploring.. he doesnt have any bark inside his cage. just drift wood that is smooth and not barky. its only when we take feild trips outside when he is exploring and hunting flies.. all of a sudden he will just start attacking loose bark. i will just have to find another plant option to put him on.. something without loose bark
