This forum is specifically for people who want to share day-to-day stories about their beardies... the weird or fun stuff. This is not a forum for seeking help, but more just for sharing the cuteness that is your beardie.
Rocky finally broke down and ate some salad today. I always get nervous when he takes a break from eating.
Poor little chubster... Maybe he can't smell the enticing-ness of the salad with all that shed in his nose holes! He does have pretty great grumpy old man eyebrows going on, too... I know I get grumpy when I have a stuffy nose...

But seriously, I still think you're lucky your beardie even has any favorite greens. All our little guy seems to want is bugs. These days, if I found him making a mess like that with his salad, I'd be happy that he was at least showing any interest in it at all.
Yes, I am VERY lucky that he even has favorite greens. AND...even luckier that I was able to figure out what they are. As a rescue, I had no idea what he liked/didn't like. I spent months trying every kind of safe greens with him. Since Mustard greens are his favorite, I am now growing 4 different varieties for him in our garden. A friend of mine in CA (surrogate beardie slave) went hunting down the seeds for me and shipped them across the country. This little guy has us all wrapped around his tiny, dragon fingers.

The Salad Wars
Mommy - 1 Rocky - 0
Guess who decided to eat his salad this morning? He tried for 3 straight days to get Daddy to give him worms, but Mommy said no! Ha ha! This ain't my first rodeo, Rocky.
**update...after eating his salad, he took a giant poop and then lay in it. Which meant he needed a bath and a clean tank. So much for a quiet morning at home.
I'm thinking that maybe he won the Salad War after all.
Yep. That pretty much sums it up.
That is so funny he throws his salad everywhere when he doesn't like it! My girls will just ignore it if they don't want it, but they are really good at eating it actually, I'm lucky Norberta will occasionally try to slide through her salad bowl and then its thrown all the way across the tank somehow.
