    After a LONG time looking for a breeder, waiting for the breeding season to start, another 1-2 months waiting for them to lay then another 1-2 months waiting for them to hatch then another 2 months waiting for them to get 8 weeks old to be shipped I finally have my two lil collared babies, Kobie and Duckie (duckie, her facelooks like land before time character) Kobie is one with the large black spots on his back. They will be about 17-24 inches long full grown. 4 1/2 inches when i got them and now 7 1/2 inches now. Like little kittens love to be held

    way to many pics to upload so here is my fb public album

    also have a 7 1/2 inch bearded dragon, he was very sweet for awhile then all of a sudden has gotten very mean hissing and biting, Any help on what his problem is or how to tame him down needed

    Hi we have 2 water dragons and a green basilisk at home too they are about 15 month old at a guess and about 18" nose to tip of tail. they share a large viv quite happily, all 3 are easy to handle but the dog is scared stiff of them and runs out the room when we get them out.

    I asked dh what to do about your unruly beardie (he's the one who cares for our 9 adults and any eggs we might have) and one thing he asked was if you might be handling another critter before trying to handle him? He could be reacting to that.

    If not that, his advice was to hold him- often. One of our females was so mean that the pet store would only handle her with gloves on. They got fed up and dh made them a great deal and brought her home. Alice has been with us for about 2 yrs now and although she occasionally postures at us, she calms right down after she's been picked up. If he was nice before, that could help.

    Not sure if this helps or not, but it's my 2 cents [​IMG]

    Quote:He's usaully the first i hold but I did hold one of the others once before holding him and he didnt react, this is recent and just started up without anything else changing
