Holding a Bearded Dragon 



Get the beardie. Tenderly put your hand, palm upturned, under its body and scoop it up. Utilize your thumb and index finger to bolster the front arms while the body rests in the palm of your hand. Ensure that the majority of the mythical serpent's legs are upheld. You may put a second hand under the tail too. 

In the event that getting your hand under the mythical beast is cumbersome, delicately get a handle on the monster behind the front shoulders with your index finger and thumb to lift marginally, and slide your other hand underneath. 

Try not to crush, simply bolster. Give it a chance to sit staring you in the face. 

Know that if the beardie's back end is not upheld, he will "windmill" his tail around in circles. On the off chance that this happens, promptly bolster his back legs and tail, so he feels more secure. Else, he may harm his back.

Your quiet tender touches will cause the beardie to feel loose. Grown-up unshaven monsters can be up to two feet long, so you might be most open to sitting with it. Youthful mythical serpents are rapid, so you may need to freely hang on. 

Realize that a beardie's scales and spikes point in one course, so pet him along the scales as opposed to against or you will wind up with prickles in your skin and a furious beardie.

Mouth expanding: As with the swelled facial hair, this signal is intended to make the winged serpent look threatening, as a show of strength or to drive away a potential attacker. 

Mouth open, yet not wide. It might simply be attempting to chill. 

Weaving head: Males show predominance with this motion. 

Arm waving: Sometimes a mythical beast may hold up one front leg and gradually wave it, which is an indication of accommodation. 

Raised tail: This is regularly seen amid rearing season. It can likewise be an indication of readiness and animation. Adolescents tend to raise their tail when they're chasing prey.[5] 



Return the monster to its environment. When you are done holding the mythical beast, or the winged serpent is done being held, return it to is walled in area utilizing the strides depicted previously. You can hold an unshaven mythical beast for whatever length of time that it will endure being held. Begin with 15 minutes once per day and as it gets used to being taken care of, you can hold it longer. A few winged serpents appreciate being held a few times each day for a few hours. At the point when the beardie gets to be anxious, the time has come to return him. 

The period of time he can stay out of his vivarium relies on upon the room temperature. Reptiles are merciless, so if the room is cool, he may begin to chill and his absorption will stop. On the off chance that his gut feels cool to the touch, then return him to the vivarium to warm up.
