Why does he keep eating my hair?

Not open for further replies.
I've had Draco for about 3-4 months, and he started to eat little pieces of my hair when he was about 1 month old. It's been a while since he's done this, but he started back up again. Is there a reason why he might be doing this? ( it's only when he's like sitting on my chest and see my hair and then he bites and starts eating it.) Is this ok for him to do? I eventually stop him but by then he's already got some eaten... worried....Help!

I do try to keep my hair pulled back, but to stay warm, he goes to the nape of my neck with his head and tucks his body under the collar of my shirt lol and he grabs my hair that way and I'm too afraid to keep him away from my neck because that the warmest part of me (I'm a pretty cold person, almost always at like 96.7 degrees rather than 98.7 and it does impact my body temperature quite a bit.) What can I do??


Mine doesn't eat my hair, but does try. When he sees my hair swinging around (especially if it's in a ponytail) he acts just the same as when he sees me serving his food. I was thinking that it might look like worms to them

He probably likes to taste of the hairspray or what ever else you use on your hair.

Hair is indigestible and can cause impaction if there is enough of accumulated as a ball in his guts.

We had a girl in our street who was eating her own hair and wound up in hospital for keyhole gastic surgery to remove the impaction it formed. Yes she essentially formed her own fur-ball.

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.
