When do they like to chill

Postby Slawson » Thu Oct 29, 2020 7:23 pm

Hello everyone

So I’m curious about what age do dragons like to come out of their tank and chill with you? When I bring my guy out (3 or so months) he wants to run around, climb the couch etc.

Its best to let them acclimate to the surroundings --- they can get lost real easy when out --- they are fast --- I would watch the stress marks when handling them and taking them out --

It's all dragon dependent. Some dragons are calm from a young age, some never stop wanting to run around and explore.

It took my Figment a couple of months to settle down and enjoy chilling with me... he was probably about 3 months old when I got him, and probably around 6 months when he started to calm down. I feel that just like human toddlers, who seem to have two speeds (full speed ahead and dead stop), some young dragons are just wriggly little bundles of energy... it's hardwired into them from generations of "run or get eaten" Darwinism. I still handled Figment frequently, but for short periods, so he would be accustomed to it - and now, at a bit more than a year from his gotcha date, he's usually incredibly mellow when I take him out, very happy to just sit and absorb my body heat.

My boy likes to run around and explore during the day but when I get him out an hour or two before bedtime he just sits on my shoulder and naps so you may want to try seeing how he acts at different times of the day.

Mari chilled with me from day one at 4 months old. She ate right out of my hand immediately and she loved to just chill on me. It depends on their personality — I think now she sees me as another basking rock.
