>>ok i just got a new Chinese Water Dragon, and i'm new to them. have a few simple questions that might make me sound stupid but i just need to make sure i'm on the right page. his name is Houdini, so when he wants to come out he'll jump on my hand climb up my arm then just chill on my shoulder. then when he gets all riled up the only thing that calms him down is putting him in his cage *most of the time he doesn't want to go in* so why does his cage calm him down? now another question what are good things to feed him...he gets 5-6 crickets a day...or well thats how many he eats. but what else can give him? that's all i'm asking now when i get more questions i'll ask....

>>thanks in advance

What I would suggest is when he is chilling, before he gets riled, put him back. This is helpful in the future to condition him that he goes into his cage calm. It will prevent him associating being caged with getting out of hand.

CWD can be offered a wide variety of crix as well as veggie diet, much like iguanas and beardies. Be sure the crix are size appropriate. A nice veggie mix is dark greens, yams, parsnip, squash all chopped to an appropriate size.
