Try reaching in very slowly and allow them to climb onto your hand. If they don't climb on to your hand tap their back legs to provoke them. Always use slow motions. And as mentioned before wash your hands before grabbing another animal.


:My cresteds freak out every time I try to take them out now. Lately I haven't been handling them as much because I just got a new Bearded Dragon who has coccidia and hookworms. So I have been kind of busy with that. My female has always been like that, but my male hasn't. I have had them about 4 - 5 months now. What can I do to get them to like coming out or at least like me! LOL
:......I have tried giving them food everytime they come out.......
:......I have tried holding them inside their terrarium, but they just jump off.......
:......I have tried taking them out at least every other day.......
:Nothing seems to work and I am running out of ideas.
:Can you help?????
