I'm debating getting one though.
Any pics of your little guy?
I think thats common with a lot of herps...lizards,reptiles,snakes..
my geckos "tolerate" me.It's like yay shes going to take me out...yay she's giving me food,all yay..something.
Not saying they hate my guts,but I do think creatures like that aren't as bondable as say rats,dogs,cats etc.
My snake is the same way.
All "yay food" "yay I'm out of the cage".
Same with my turtles.
So please don't be offended if the beardie don't start cuddling up to you & such.
In my experience with reptiles...they really do 'tolerate' us for the most part,but love to just do their own thing
