My bearded dragon doesn't like water

Postby SANDSTORMtbeardie11 » Thu Dec 03, 2020 10:03 am

I'm really curious of why my beardie doesn't like water. Of course he drinks it but when its time to take him a bath he tries to swim out and sometimes right when im about to put him in the water he will go crazy. :| Is this something about his personality?

Some of them don't like water. It's a personality thing and varies quite a bit between each of them. If they don't like water, don't force baths. The stress isn't worth it, and that's OK. Offer water by dripping some on their nose to lick up. Otherwise they don't really need to be cleaned/bathed unless they become soiled.
