I don't necessarily pick Thor up every day, but every time I pass his cage, I put my hand in and give him some chin and nose rubs, and usually rub down his back. And I let him sniff me. It has helped with being able to handle him, and it should help when I take him to the vet.

When I first got Ardie, I was home all day so I took him out several times a day. Alas, once I was back to work, it's just once per day excluding weekends, but I do spend time with him for the rest of the evening.

Every day multiple times. He doesn't really like to be held much but is happy enough to let me transport him back and forth from his cage!

If I did not have to work it would be several times a day, but it is always daily, even if for just 20 minutes before I leave for work, he always gets some lovin

Everyone gets a cuddle every evening before lights out.

Sometime I have 2 dragons and a skink on me for daddy time at the same time , works well with the bluetongues and dragons , not so well with Fluffy the water dragon who crawls all over everyone ( and wants to be friends with everyone ---- water skinks are very social skinks ) . So she gets her own time on me,.

I used to handle Sandy Pants multiple times a day, and she would run around upstairs with me. But that was a mistake, since it messed up her shedding! She's behind now, so I handle her less. Occasional pats and rubs, handling maybe once or twice a week. But then she laid an egg (not bred) so to not stress her out, she just gets occasional pets.

possible brumation

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
