Volcano Gets Cranky During Shed

Postby Shaun78 » Mon Aug 24, 2020 4:05 am

So my little guy is going thru a shed at the moment. So I figured I'd give him some relief and bring him for a soak. Note to self Volcano erupts when he's shedding so leave him the hell alone lol

The little sucker is fast. Ran up my shoulder and bit me and climbed down my back before I knew what's what. So I guess the moral is leave him alone during shed.

Unusual for them to bite out of aggression, but shedding does make them pretty cranky. I agree with your conclusion to let him be until the shed is done. I hope that face cut heals up for you quickly.

When I saw the pic I immediately assumed it was a scratch...but a bite, yikes! Good thing he got himself an experienced human and not some newbie.

I know! I thought it was a scratch but a bite that hard is something else! Hope it heals fast, bc I know beardie bites are one helluva pain (and I haven't even been bit half as hard as that :shock: )

It healed up in about two days. It hurt like hell but looked worse than it really was. He has quite the bite strength though. But as I type this he’s out cold on my shoulder like a little puppy lol.

This goes to show that Volcano definitely found the right forever home with you. You didn't overreact to his moment of pain and I'm sure he appreciated it.

So Volcano's shed ended and almost right after I believe he went in brumation. For 2ish weeks he wouldn't come out of his hide or hammock and slept pretty much all day. Now he's back to running all over his tank when I'm home and wants me to take him out but almost immediately he'd try jumping down and running away from me. If I tried to pick him up he'd gape at me and once or twice tried to bite me. Now after not giving up on him and carefully handling him everyday despite his pissy disposition I think I've finally tamed him down (or at least mostly tamed him down). Past two night as I sit playing some Xbox I look over and he's glass surfing and staring at me. So I pick him up and sit back down with him and he snuggles right up to my neck and chills. We'll now the little bugger thinks he can now take over my bed because when and gets ready to go to sleep he'll jump over to my bed (I sit with him right next to it) and makes himself comfortable in the middle of the blankets and it's lights out. It's adorable when I go and pick him up to put him in his tank for bed because with eyes still close and he'll grab on and not let me go. Every time I get one leg released he'll grab on with another. I seriously hope this is a sign he completely trusts me now because I don't want another dragon kiss to the face :lol:
