I'm glad your beaded lizard has responded to the changes you made with your husbandry. When a healthy captive specimen doesn't act "normal" it's usually telling you that something isn't right with the captive environment you have provided it with. Heat, or lack of, is usually the culprit. (I think many hobbiests initially overdo it with the whole heat thing wether it be lizards, snakes, chelonians or even amphibians.)
I've found young beadeds to be far more outgoing and active than baby gilas and take to climbing and exploring their habitat with less fear and apparent loathing of their keeper. I've had baby beadeds come to me (source of food) at less than a month old and walk over my hand to take a pinky off tongs...some gilas have taken four or five months to respond to human interaction without huffing and a gaping/snapping mouth.
ps: And don't get bitten...even by a baby...it really F******* HURTS !
