won't eat unless dusted crickets

Postby MyBearded » Sat Aug 12, 2017 11:40 am


My bearded dragon won't eat(mostly) crickets unless they are calcium dusted.

He is about 3 months old and eats 15 crickets per day (he does not want more than that)

one day ,for some reasons, he does not eat un(?)dusted crickets.....

I am using the repcal calcium without D3, because I m using the powersun, which I heard I should not use Calcium with D3 due to its high intensity of UVB ray.

I am worried about over calcium consumption ........

would it be okay if I use calcium without d3?

I though it might be ok because he does not eat as much as others eat per day..

Use both....2 days with D3 and 3 days w/out D3. Always powder the bugs very lightly to avoid giving too much of any supplement. Some beardies are funny like that, at times just going for the coated bugs. :)

Do yu have pics of your baby + of his set up ? Here's how to post :
