Question Newbie beardie owner.

Just got a new beardie yesterday, she's three years old, a rescue, and so far, she's been an angel. I'm wondering how long I should wait before taking her out to explore, I've done it twice and she goes right back and starts clawing at her enclosure. I want her to be comfortable, should I just keep baby stepping it, seeing if once or twice a day she'll come out and play? I'm also wondering how long I should give her before bathing, due to relocation stress, I don't want to give her a scare.. any help?

Beardies don't really get stressed by being taken out, so you only need to wait 3 days or so. I tried to wait a week before taking Dudley out when I first got him, but I failed LOL.


Most adult beardies love their baths. After she settles in just see how she reacts, and if it freaks her out just wait a while longer before giving her another.
