New to keeping beardies

Postby Beardeddragon77 » Tue Jan 22, 2019 1:37 pm

I’ve just bought a juvenile Beardie, I’m told that he’s about 4 months old. He’s quite calm but not completely used to me yet and I’ve never had him out of his tank I’ve just been getting him used to my hand. Tonight is the 7th night I’ve had him and he’s been digging in one of his corners and glass surfing, after doing this he went and hid under his log which he’s never done before. I was just wondering should I be worried ?? He didn’t appear to have any stress marks

That is normal behavior- you might want to put in a blanket like fleece or maybe some paper towels in one of the hides- they like to burrow- they like soft--- glass surfing usually means they want out- you need to hold him so he gets used to you--

This morning I turned his lights on and he hasn’t came out and normally he does by now. Could he be brumating at 4 months ?

Not actually brumating -- Hiccup did same thing around 4 months -- just being lazy - keep an eye on him / her --

Keep putting your hand in the tank --- he will get used to it - pet him in the tank -- and hold him-- eventually he will quit running away and if hes flaring at you or hissing he will eventually quit that too- Hiccup did all of that - he bit my daughter a couple of times but not hard --- took about a month or so and he quit!
