My experiences are exactly the same. My biggest male is tamer than my beardies. Females are pretty flighty. I do think the best way to get one that tame is to get it captive bred in the US (non-import) and to raise him from a baby--they really do develop trust with individuals. Most of the imports I've gotten are flighty and the male that trusts me so much is not like that with everyone--he doesnt like strange men especially--LOL--that is my only way to get him to frill anymore!

::Hi, Ive been researching frillies for some time now, for a possible new pet. I havnt found anything about their temperment. I currently have 2 bearded dragons, and 2 uromastyx. Are frillies like beardies?? Do they like to be handled and stay on your sholder? Or like uros-- constantly on the move and not really interested in hanging out with you? Are they easily stressed? Thanks guys for any help!

:males tend to be much more tame than females. my largest male ( almost three feet) is tamer (if you can believe that) than my beardeies. he will sit on my arm for as long as i want. my females are not agressive but do not like to be held.
