I have not kept Water Dragons for years but none of them were good to handle, they have a natural flight instinct and sharp claws. Bearded Dragons are good to handle.So we are adding to our collection for Xmas. Which is better choice Gippsland water dragon or a eastern water dragon?
Want the choice to be family friendly and able to be handled

I was offered a job (most likely a joke) about a year ago if I could catch a wild eastern water dragon... I still haven’t been able to they are so fast and agile,The easterns we had previously were skittish and shy. Our current one is an eating machine, so much so I have to watch my fingers.
I have heard Gippy's are ptetty much the same. Not known as good handlers.
If it's a good handler you want, a beardie, bluey, or ackie is the go.
Thats the thing too if they do decide to jump and go for a run, GOOD LUCKWe have both. Don’t really handle them as they are all still quite small and would be a bugger to hunt down and catch if they jumped free. It all comes down to which you prefer. Bob, one of our easterns has lovely war paint but I think our little gippy is gorgeous too.
