My male sulcata Rex has been pulling out his penis while soaking. Is this normal? I spray him with cold water to get him to put it up.
Just wondering if it was normal behavior, or if something is wrong?
Thank you. Attached a pic to give you an idea of his size. 1E0882A7-142D-41F2-98D3-A3314FAD7071.jpeg

Normal behavior for a teenager. Just wait till he starts making love to random inanimate objects ?

Very normal!!! When my oldest first started that, I would have to leave him in the bath for hours sometimes because he would not put it away. I didn’t think he would ever learn to poop outside the bath either. I haven’t seen him hitting the rocks or statues yet but I did notice yesterday that one of my tortoise statues is missing some paint on the peak of his shell ?. He was about the same size as yours when he first started too.
