Jealous bearded Dragon
Jealous Bearded Dragon I have had Rasta, my baby bearded Dragon for a year and a half. He is very jealous, and I did not know that was possible. At first I thought he just felt intimidated
by the dog being near, but it is true! He is extremely jealous. Whenever I give my dog any attention Rasta the bearded Dragon flares up and starts bouncing off the tank walls. A lot of
reptiles are very aerial, So in the last month or so I have put the tank up higher than the dogs eye level, and it is getting better. As long as he can not see the dog he is fine. There has been
a couple of instances that I swear he could hear me talking to the dog, because he has had a couple episodes when i knew he could not see the dog, maybe it was just coincidence.
I have taken him out and about, and around other dogs without him flaring his beard. So I know it is a jealousy thing, because I am not giving these other dogs attention as I do my own. So my advice
for keeping your jealous reptile from giving himself brain damage by trying to bust out of the cage, would be to put the cage in a spot that the object of jealousy is out of site and mind. Iguanas, on the other hand, can be better acquainted, it is a slow process.
