Beardie won't let me pick it up

Postby Dubah » Sun Jun 18, 2017 8:24 pm


So pretty much as the title says, my beardie will not let me pick her up, I can get my hands near her, but as soon as i try to pick her up she runs. Once i get her out of the cage if i can catch her without hurting her, she is fine.

So my simple question is, is there a way to get a beardie used to being picked up? I can literally do anything else to her, she takes food from my hand if I try, really, that's the only way she eats greens. She let's me pet her with no problems, she just refuses to allow me to pick her up.. Any ideas?
