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.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
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)
Step 2: Template
Get a template that fits your reptile from here: http://www.beardeddragoncaresheet.org/lizard_harness/size-templates.htm
Cut it out and pin it to your fabric
Step 3: Cutting
Cut the fabric, optionally make a t-shirt shape as shown for added support and comfort
Step 4: Arm Holes
Mark the arm holes with preferably a fabric pen, I didn't have one so I used orange crayon
Step 5: Cutting the Arm Holes
Cut the arm holes out, you can start them by folding the fabric and cutting a small slit as shown
Create a small slit on both sides for the string to go through using the same method as the arm holes, just smaller
Put the string through one end and tie it
Put the harness on your reptile and then put the string through the other hole and use the bead to tighten.
Rejoice, your reptile will now be trying to figure out why it cannot simply run away
