heres a question for ya... my little savanna chooses to sit on me and "naps". It climbs up on me usually sitting on my chest or against my neck occasionally peeking into my eyes and touching my face when I talk to it. However some places Ive read have said "they dont sleep on you. They are actually are shutting you out. " and " that is causing undue stress for your animal". So much contaversy My herp friend agrees with my thoughts on this.I feel it sees me as a warm comfort zone, food source, and source of new things it likes. This 20" lizard comes out of its cave to me even when I dont have food. It is an amazing animal. Smart and fairly calm. It really likes women and will not whap us. However, men make it very defensive and it will aproach with tail ready to strike. My boyfriend has been gettin on its good side slowly by being part of target training feeding and cage cleaning. It rarely shuts its eyes to close us out. Picking it up is amazingly easy because it adjusts it body in my hand before being lifted. It likes outings and remains close to me when scouting. If something makes it uncomfortable it returns to my lap. What do you think? I would like to hear from other Bosc owners. The reason I ask is because ive never had my own baby. Ive had rescues that were much larger that I worked with but they didnt have much fear of predators so they did well when I got them mentally relocatable so others could care for them. That was always successfull and most lived into their estimated late teens. This juvinile has an amazing amount of potential, and it amazes me every day with its willingness to be around me. Plus, we havnt had this one long.
