I have to agree beardys are really tame. Since i got Zeus at around 6 weeks he loved to be handled and theres nothing more he enjoys than to sit on my shoulder while im about the house. Beardies really are a great reptile.
as well as being "tame" they are unagressive meaning, for instance, we have a rather tame bosc also... but if he got out uder say, the wardrobe [bad example as to get anywhere near a wardrobe savvy would have to go through 3 rooms and up 14 stairs]
I wouldnt wana just reach under and grab at woteva... with a beardie... you generally could even at a relatvely tame standard.
Totally Agree! Bearded Dragons make wonderful pets.
When there little they can be skittich and run away at the first chance they get but they soon calm down and see you as a Guardian. Offer them food and there be you buddy for life!
As they get older they seem to relax more and take life easy "LAZY" My lot love basking and watching T.V on the sofa when i let them out, DRU my female loves to look out of the window and catch the sun a little. They also love baths and most of all they love Cuddles and lots of attention.
When i got Spike my first Beardie, it was the best choice i made and fell inlove with the little guys straight away.
Mostly all bearded dragons are unaggresive, however, not all are that way. the only reason why aggresive is when they are mis treated, etc. But if you handle them daily then there's really no problem. Be sure (if you get on) not to handle him within the first week, he/she will need to get over relocation stress, and handling him could make his day a lot worse :lol:
Oh, disregard post :lol: Bearded dragons are usually 18-20" some are bigger, but thats about the right size. Usually anytime a bearded dragon is smaller then that (if he's an adult), then he's undersized, however, thats not always the case....
I was using our bosc [savvy, a bosc monitor OR savannah Monitor- Varanus exanthematicus]
as an example of how a beardie isnt only tame, but generally unagressive and less of a hunter by instinct so as can be trusted with your fingers even untame as much if not more thna a tame bosc monitor.
