Water Dragons are extremely pleasant to care for and beautiful to observe. While they occasionally fight among themselves or compete for superiority with cage-mates, they are rarely aggressive toward human keepers. If frightened, they might give you an open-mouthed threat, which they rarely follow through on, or a light tail whip when picked up.
