Beardie won't eat

Postby tangyandyoshi » Tue May 21, 2019 4:26 am

Hi, so basically my female beardie is most likely pregnant ( i can feel the eggs or at least i think its eggs) and I heard that they eat less at some point when they are pregnant. Although i think its been a week now that she hasn't eaten a single thing, she has no appetite what soever, I even put a box of crickets in front of her and she won't even go up to it (she usually goes crazy over them and keeps grabbing more when her mouth is full). I'm trying to get her to lay her eggs hoping that this will solve the problem and I just made her a lay box and put her in it and she is digging but i think she's digging trying to get out. By the way she's been furiously digging around her tank before i got her lay box. Any help would be appreciated

Shes gonna lay is my guess from the way it sounds--- just keep an eye on her and let us know when she does

Ok thanks, she's still pretty confused like she doesnt want to be in her lay box so I put it inside her viv because the viv is really big because I thought she would be more comfortable but shes still trying to get out really bad and then when she manages to get out her lay box she just starts scratching inside her main viv but the substrate isn't deep enough

Put her in a smaller tote or tank w/ her lay box and see if that helps
