two weeks ago i adopted a juvenile beardie from a rescue tank at the pet store. i dont know its age, but its about five inches nose to vent if thats any indicator.
i bought a beardie because i heard they make great pets and like to be held, etc.
the one i bought however, will sit on my hand for a few minutes then jet across the room to hide, or leap off my hand regardless of how high off the ground it is. the jumping concerns me because i dont want it to hurt itself.
then when i put it away, it goes into its hide like it was violated.
im feeling like i made the wrong decision.
does any one have any tips, suggestions, or words of encouragement?
