is there anyone near to you that could take this little tear away on for a few weks to calm him down ?

a freind of mine is in the same situation and its not getting any better, i think some beardies are just like this full stop. i know alot of beardies will calm after patient handeling but some dont, hope you get it sorted and good luck,

i tryed with a t-shirt and just come back from holidays, so didnt see him for a week.but it didnt help.i know when he was in the shop he used to attack other just tired of fighting with him all the time.if we decide to give him away i dont even know who will take him.he is so cute though..

What area are you from as in my signature there is a list of rehomers around the uk, maybe they could help. ASs stated before maybe somone could foster him till hes calmed down....if possible. x

iam from skipton, in north yorkshire.we wrer thinking of selling him and getting a couple of babys so we cant start from the begining but what if the same happens?

sorry to hear your having trouble calming him, do you get him out everyday? do you think you are scared of him now so its making things even harder? if so you could try getting someone to foster him see if he calms down.... i would love to help but am obviously too far away!

Efunia, what do you do when he charges at your hand?

Do you pull your hand away, or do you let him bite you?

I have to admit, my inclination would be (while he's still as small as he is) to let him bite and learn that biting doesn't make the giant monkey go away.

Of course I'd also probably let him grab onto me and pick him up while he was doing it, so that he learns that biting just gets him bodily held until he lets go, and that letting go of me means he gets to sit in an OPEN hand unrestrained, or that he gets to go back in his cage.

i did get him out everyday before, but now he wont let me, i dont want to stressed himout even more.i do try, but mostly it ends up i me stroking his head and then he runs of.
