Hello,

Yes, it doesn't feel good when they clamp down & bite! I hope you are alright. :D
I guess he really wanted that apple.

My understanding from reading & vids :study: is that BD bites are not that big a deal; possibly, but not often, blood-drawing. Is this not so? Could those who've experienced it please elucidate (as objectively--if possible--as possible)?

Thanks

When he was trying to get the apple he bit me instead on the side of the palm of my hand then tried again and bit exactly the same place. 🤣 it honestly did hurt more than you would expect, maybe just because of where it was, and there was a tiny drop of blood where I think only one tooth broke the skin on my hand. The little tinker 😁

How old is Spike?

I got bite once because I had to force my girl to take medicine at about 7 months old. She was lethargic from the parasites but I barely felt it. Also I have a high pain tolerance. She could probably get me a lot more now at a year old and big and strong

Hiya DorgEndo.
Spike is approx 2 years old. We have had him nearly 2 weeks now. First bearded dragon I have ever owned. I think his bite was purely accidental as he was happily eating from my hand at the time but as I said before it was quite a shock! Haha

To answer mrs spectrum, it's true that an accidental bite may not draw blood but can definitely do so. BUT, if a dragon is angry they can inflict a serious bite, although it's rare that they do it to their owners. They have powerful jaws and even young ones can bite off a siblings foot. Adults can do that as well and that means right through the bone. Strong jaws + powerful bites but they rarely use them to harm us. :)
