Not a clue--- how long have you had the dragon? Please post a pic of the tank and lighting please -- this is not normal behavior

Ok so the UVB is a good one- is it the 12% bulb in the fixture or a 14% bulb? I see the screen is a wide hole type so basking decor should be 8-10 inches directly under it---- it looks like she has places to go to get out from under it -- Surface basking temps should be 95-100 taken w/ a digital probe thermometer---- I see a stick on for ambient temps--- lighting and temps in the tank attribute to behaviors of dragons - can you get a video of the dragon throwing herself at the tank - when does she do it - how often is she doing it?

So she does it when I go to hold her and she bite me today she’s been acting very strange lately very aggressive

Ok so its not the UVB --- are your temps being taken w/ a digital probe thermometer- they will get aggressive if the temps in the tank are too hot--- we may need our vet tech on here to respond to this issue - she may have some more ideas than Iam aware of -- I always start w/ the lighting and temps in the tank first --
