[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]
I got a six-month-old beaded dragon a few days ago. I use a 20 gallon tank for this little guys.
I got basically everything for it UV light, basking light, tree branches etc. The temperature on the hot side is 40 degree Celsius and the cold size is around 25 degree Celsius. I fed my dragon crickets and a little vegetable salad everyday. The tank is dry and clean.
It's just yesterday, I took my dragon out and put him on my floor. He got really excited and tried to explore everything. When I tried to put him back in his tank, he got really mad and escaped my hand several times. The last time I got him, he just bite me on my finger. Luckily, I was wearing a glove and the glove was broken but my finger was fine.
(I am a little scared to touch my bearded dragon and I use gloves to touch it every time. The glove is a very soft thin Kimberly Clark glove. That wouldn't hurt him at all)
I always handled him gently and I don't understand why he bites me!
Also he is always doing the glass dance in the tank. He seems so eager to get out of his tank.
I have to take him out to clean his faeces everyday but I am now afraid of taking him out. Does anyone know why he bites me? What should I do?
