|Subject: Acting Like a Spaz and diet questions 10/4/2012, 6:13 pm|| |
My little Bearded Dragon, Peaches, has been acting a little odd lately. When I first got her she was a little hyper and tended to nip and hiss and fuss whenever I went to get her out of her tank. After about a week of interaction she calmed down and was really chill and mellow. All of a sudden out of the blue she started acting hyper and aggressive again. She raises all kinds of cane when I get into her tank to get her out and she tries to nip me. She settles eventually in my hands but when I set her on my chest or something her favorite game is "Pretend to be invincible and conquer the living room at the speed of light". Any tips? She has been raised alone so far and I intend to get her a friend when I get the money. Would that help?
Anyone have anything special they offer their beardies as treats? I have a whole list of foods:
Anyone have anything else that they have found Beardies to like?

Not really a good idea. BDs are very territorial and should not be kept communally. You may eventually try to keep a PAIR together, but NEVER house 2 males together, the consequences could be disastrous.
You can look here for a list of good and bad foods and make your judgment. Your list is fine for TREATS, but a part of it is not suitable for regular diet (mealworms, parsley, waxworms, etc.)
As for the behaviour, just keep handling moderately and she'll get used. Baby dragons are often very defensive by nature and it will be easier to "tame" them once they grow a bit.
