Recommended method for bonding with your bearded dragon, from your local hippie beardless dragon (cw weed):
Right around lights out time, get high af, burrito them up in a blanky (right now I'm using a washcloth, his blankies are in the mail) and hold them against your chest while listening to soothing music.
He fell asleep right on me while we listened to an ocean sounds vid on youtube.
(May also work with cats, but they probably won't like the purrito. Just curl up with them instead.)
