Lol Yep, I Recently went to a pet store and there was a single beardie in a cage looking sad and sickly, I Went to take a closer look at it and It immediately jumped up and ran to me, tried running at the glass to get to me (or get out), and it put it's tiny lil paw on the glass and smiled at me. :love5: I Would’ve saved it in a heartbeat but it was on sale for 58$ (for just the lizard!) :o :banghead:

Lol With my first beardie I Thought that Cisco was a boy so I Named (him at the time) Cisco (from the flash), and then about two months later a breeder told me that Cisco was a girl, and the Name has stuck ever since Lol.

But are you sure She/he is a male? Lol She/he looks a little small to be sexed (Is He/she around 6-7"?).. [Click image to enlarge]
The normal way, make sure to be on a hard flat surface and have the tail up to around a 90* angle.

and My personal favourite, The Flashlight way, Be sure to use a (VERY) bright flashlight and be in a dark windowless room (preferably with the lights off).

and Shedding is normal, It means they're growing. :) It lasts around a week or two and IMO I would turn the heat rock off, then cut off the cord so it won't radiate any heat. You can still pick her up but be a bit more careful. :) When my beardies shed I Put coconut oil on the shedding areas and then give a bath with a few drops of olive oil. You can mix coconut oil and olive oil to put on Him/her. :study:

Everytime she opens her mouth like that at you …. it's a bluff. Pop a tasty food treat or a bug in the open mouth (from the side) …. she'll very quickly either
>> get so full she'll refuse to open it (thinking you'll want to stuff more food in)
>> learn you are the food giver
>> learn you are not going to harm her.

If you got a teddy bear that's nice and soft for her she might enjoy snuggling up with it at night.

She should be fine if your gone for a little while. The only times my beardies start getting unhappy is when I'm gone for more than a day. But being gone for just one day or half of it my beardies won't give a care normally. Just as long as I feed them beforehand.

I need a little help please :) sorry :(

what's wrong with JIMMIA ? please :|

I feed her new crickets everyday and take out all the old ones but she's not eating all the ones I give her, youse say give her at least 20 but she's not eating that many she probably eats about 5 to 8 if that every 2 days (again I know to take out all the old stuff); also she's not eating all her vegetable and fruit- why? I keep it separated and not mix it together; also I have been changing her water to, how do I know she drinks it?

please note:

I've had her 3 months now so obviously I'm doing alright but don't know what else to do, I do do tekp checks and pat her everyday and change her stuff every day and a half :)

Well a Baby not eating really isn't good. :? Try putting her bugs in with her food, She also might have something wrong with her, So I Would get her checked out by an Experienced reptile vet. Asap Just to see what is going on with her, Try to give the vet as much care info that you do with her so they can see what's going on with her. This is a List of herp vets and hopefully you can find one: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q ... fAEPCSx1AB

I Hope she gets better! :)

Is she shedding? That can affect appetite sometimes. They also tend to go through phases in which they are more hungry than others. Has the amount she wants been changing? Is she acting lethargic or is she still nice and active and ferocious? I would try offering crickets in small batches. Just a few at a time. That makes them easier to track. Just keep offering small batches until she loses interest and then remove the leftovers. Offer this way a couple of times per day and see how that goes. Based on the photos you've posted she looks healthy and alert so I don't think it's a big cause for concern at the moment.
