my leopard gecko seems to enjoy coming out and just roaming around, i wouldnt call it handling though.... i simply let him explore myself and the room im in but always supervised


my bearded dragon doesnt like to come out that often and when she does, its usually to just sit at the window and look outside.... then wants to go back in her vivarium..... she doesnt seem to want to chill on me for long at all like i hear of many other dragons


though my gecko is 5 years old and my dragon is only about 10 months old so... that may change, i dont know

The OP has made literally loads of posts regarding reptiles - all of which are being answered, but he keeps on 'arguing' with the information he is being given, stating that he has read elsewhere what is suitable for which lizard etc, and that we are wrong!

Sorry, but in my opinion, no reptile likes being handled in the way that has been asked in previous posts; no lizard can be housed in such small enclosures as to the links provided; no lizard likes being transported backwards and forward to temporary enclosures.

I've nothing against questions being asked if advice is taken on board and the same question is not repeated in another thread! I've nothing against 14 year olds owning reptiles, as a parent myself, providing the iparent(s) is/are fully in agreement and understand the care/commitment required, together with any potential costs etc and that the child is fully aware of them too.

Of course at 14 years old so many things can change, and guess who can end up having to care for the animal(s) when said child goes away, say to university etc?
