Safe HAND FEEDING
Hand-feeding your dragon is great for bonding and building trust. I do recommend that you wear gloves especially when feeding adults. Gardening gloves work best and will prevent your dragon from accidentally biting you. Bites can occur when they see you holding the feeder bugs and they get over excited and try to quickly grab it, especially when they are very hungry. Bites also can occur if a dragon is always used to seeing your bare hand giving it food he/she could assume you have food for example when you are cage cleaning and accidentally snap at you. Seeing a certain glove over and over will help them identify that this object means food is coming.
