Got bitten

Postby BeardedDragonSteve » Mon Dec 02, 2019 12:31 pm

So today I got my first bite from my Smaug. She was hungry and I hand feed her and I know when hand feeding them that can happen but this was the first. She drew some blood, I disinfected the bite area and put a band-aid on and I'm fine.

That will happen now and then. Sometimes they just get excited or mistake fingers for part of the food.

Yes Virginia! They DO have teeth! 😆
Got my first bite last week. As long as cleaned well and taken care of, personally don't think it should be a problem. I washed well with soap and water, antibiotic ointment and bandaid and healed in a couple days.
And yeah it hurt. Lol!

Hello,

Yes, they definitely have teeth & it does hurt when they bite! LOL It will heal up just fine,
but just keep it clean.

I'm just glad that she is only 4 months old because if she was older that would hurt more.
