Taming the wee beastie!


New member
Hi all, new member here! This topic is nothing new to most of you, but I’m a first time beardie mom and would like all the tips I can get!

I have a 7 month old little female dragon named Artemis. I acquired her on 9/25 from a breeder and she was handled by her breeder.

I’m madly in love with her and have tried to take things very slowly. I realized I was picking her up incorrectly (from above) and have been trying to start from square one again.

I typically put my hands in her enclosure several times a day, inching closer. Today I spent about an hour and a half with her. She eventually jumped into my hand when she had a little spaz attack. She let me hold her for a bit and when I returned her to her enclosure, she did let me catch her again. She also sat in my palm for a little bit.

I’m looking for any taming tips for my wild little beast!

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.
