Baby Bearded dragon and mealworms?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

I fed my baby bearded dragon a pretty good size mealworm last night and he ate the whole thing.. well the next day I come home from work and i seen idk if it was ***** or vomitt or what but whatever it was it was like a orange red color and I was wondering if this was normal for them to ***** that color if they eat meal worms? I could even see part of the meal worm in there.. is it even safe for my baby beardie to eat meal worms that was the only time i ever fed him one?

A baby dragon should not have mealworms as they cannot properly digest the shell. If the worms came out undigested, chances are the beardie didn't bask long enough after eating. We'd have to see a pic of the "poo" to properly answer your full question though.

It may have even vomited, that's the other problem with mealworms for babies. They are O.K. in small amounts along with crickets and greens for dragons over 8" , and even then it's best to use freshly shed ones. [ they look white ] But crix are better as a staple...even mini mealies can cause a baby to vomit if they eat too many.
