    Default "mood swing"/sudden change in behaviour? I would love opinions!

    My male crestie is about a year and a half old and weighs apprx 25 grams. I have had him for a year and have a feeding routine that I stick to!
    Over the course of the summer, I have moved him into a larger tank (no problems adjusting) and got an 'automatic mister' or unit that sprays the tank incase I'm not there to do it. This sprayer does make a noticeable vibrating/humming sound when it sprays.
    Recently, he has become VERY erratic. He runs around the tank constantly if I open the door or if any of the vines inside make rustling sounds. He used to be quite calm, would even come to the front of the tank when the door was opened and jump onto my hand.
    He is still eating and pooping which I would normally say is enough, but I am just curious as to why he could be behaving this way?
    ANY suggestions are welcome, I just want to see if his behaviour is because of his environment or just a 'gecko thing'.

    Thanks!

    It's the teenager crazies I think. They tend to go through this, especially males. You might give the gecko some bugs to chase

    Thanks for the advice! I haven't treated him to some crickets in a short while so I will definitely get more!

    Sometimes bugs help with the teen crazies . Also if you have females, handle him first. Growing up is so fun!
