Picture of Making a reptile harness
In this tutorial I will be showing you how to make a reptile harness. I am using a bearded dragon for this one, but it applies to all reptiles.

Step 1: Needed Items

The items you will need are:
-Relatively thick fabric, depending on the reptile thinner or thicker should be used
-String with bead that tightens(If anyone knows a name, please comment)

I searched online forever trying to find a name for the "bead that tightens." I looked for adjustable toggles & spring toggles.........nothing I wanted. I went to Hobby Lobby, and by the zippers I found them! They call it a "cord stop."
Will this work with a gecko?

Unfortunately the link doesn't work and the patterns don't seem to be available anywhere else.
the link http://www.beardeddragoncaresheet.org/lizard_harness/size-templates.htm is no longer working :(
I love the way this one fits snuggly. I use the harnesses because they like to spend warm days wandering about the house - if the harness is attached to a ball of yarn I just have to follow the yarn to find them!
Just what I was looking for! The tightening bead are known as "adjustable toggles" :) Got to tweet this to! Safety is paramount!

Cool. So this is more of a reptile containment device than anything else? I was trying to figure out what a reptile would need a harness for!

Its more to keep a reptile like a bearded dragon secure or in one place than anything. Like if you go somewhere with him on your shoulder, if he slips or falls he would not get hurt, or you would be able to stop him from falling.
