only poops in bath, worried???

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

ive had my beardie for about a month now, when i first got him he would poo about once a day, he is 15 inches long and had never had a bath, so, i started bathing him every five days, he hated it at first but now doesnt mind at all, but now, he will only poo in the bath, never in his cage. it started to worry me when he didnt poo after four days so i have been bathing him every other day now, he is healthy and gaining weight but will only poo in his bath. IM just wondering if it is something i should be worried about, he is eating fine, acting fine, everything fine, just only poos in his bath. should i be worried or not?

It sounds like you have a well trained miracle dragon. Doesn't sound like anything is wrong.

My little one will actually demand to be taken out of her take to poop. She prefers to poop in the bath but anywhere is preferable to her tank for her!

It is an advantage - Angie also only ever goes in the bath, but she has a bath every day or at the most every second day. Flippie had his first bath-poo a few days ago, but he was absolutely terrified that it happened then and there. I wish I could get him trained as well... :wink:

Curt suffered 4 impactions, 3 of which made him collapse in pain with a black beard and stress marks, 1 of which he threw up, and 1 of which he nearly prolapsed. You should consider yourself lucky to have a pooping beardie as far as I'm concerned.
I refuse to believe that loose substrates are acceptable.. RIP Curt 2-21-2011.. I'm sorry we didn't get the sand out sooner, buddy :cry:

Zilla will hold it in for a day or two if i don't bathe him,then he will feverishly glass dance for about 5-15 mins and poop at the last moment,if i bathe him every other day he poops only in the bath lol,it's totally normal btw :)
