Is he ever going to be tamer?

So I've had Emerson for 4 months now and when I got him they said he's not very friendly. I've been working with him daily since then and he still puffs up/black beards when I pick him up and when I hold him he fights it. He is almost a year now and he gets his baths every other day and everything but is he ever going to calm down more? Honestly I don't mind if he isn't, Ralph is still sweet as can be and I have no problems letting Emerson be a cage pet. I just don't want to keep stressing him out every day if its pointless, you know :)

I'm glad I found your post. My Eric is a real buddy and loves to be with me but little Thor (4 months?) sounds like your little one.
It's kinda disappointing to want to cuddle them and see them run away.
I applaud your letting him be a cage pet; you accept and love him just as he is, but it's so great when they look for you and wanna play.
Maybe someone will have answers that we both can use. Maybe it's just a "baby" thing?
And in the meantime we can enjoy them for the cute little animals that they are.

Swordtail has been doing a whole lot of "Lizard yoga" lately
Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
