Beardie not settling down

Postby Celestet » Wed May 12, 2021 3:09 pm

My beardie is still biting and hissing when I try to hold him. I have had him for a little over a month and he is still a baby I have tried to just go ahead and hold him but again he still bites when I open his cage. can anyone please give me some insight I am wanting him to trust me.

Time and patience --- Blaze ran and hissed and bit for months after we got him -- just keep working w/ him -- have you tried hand feeding him worms or BSFL ? Have you put a piece of clothing or a fleece blanket in the tank w/ your smell on it -- he needs to learn to trust you -- approach from the side not over head he will think your a predator -- they have a 3rd eye on top of their heads for predators -- get your hands in the tank as much as possible so he gets used to you --
