Do beardies have a snake-recognition instinct?

Postby loljelloclowdz » Wed Jul 01, 2020 8:41 am

I had Mari outside with me (she’s on a leash) and we were just sitting around when my mom came by dragging a black garden hose in plain view of us. I’ve never seen Mari freak out so bad in my life, but she started wiggling down next to the garden box and her beard turned sorta black until I picked her up and held her firmly to my chest. (It’s back to normal and it’s been about 15 minutes, so she’s not injured, sick, or dying, lol. She’s on my chest indoors just looking around because she’s still paranoid about a snake in the area, but I’m about to burrito her to calm her down.

Update: she’s now in a burrito (literally - I have a giant tortilla blanket for myself, and she has a tiny one for her, but I’m using my big one because her little one isn’t large enough to use as a calming blanket. It’s a similar concept to birds: throwing a blanket over them momentarily can calm them down if they are terrified.)
