    Outside Agression?

    Well, yesterday I got Jumanji a new harness. He is fine with wearing it, but as soon as I take him outside and put him on the ground he goes crazy and charges me mouth gaping. He walked into my floor garden, so I bent over to get him out, and he slammed me HARD. He managed to get all my fingers...

    No UVB

    Jumanji bit me for the first time

    In his defense I had eaten chicken and forgot to wash the scent from my hand. When I put my hand in the tank, he looked like he was gonna strike like he does when he eats. I was lifting my hand out and he jumped and snagged my thumb. It slightly bled.
