Feeders are too big this week

Postby kjworley19 » Thu Oct 29, 2020 12:34 pm

Hello, my usual subscription for dubias for my 8ish month old beardie came in but they sent me 1 inch roaches instead of the 5/8 inch ones he usually eats. I am afraid they are too big for him but I don't have access to alternate options, and his next box of roaches will not arrive until monday. Should I feed them to him anyway or will they be too large for him and impact him?

He may be able to chew them down without an issue since he's several months old. Might be OK to just try them one at a time and observe how he handles them. If he can chew them well, it shouldn't be a problem.

If he is a good chewer, it should be ok. If not, I'd reach back out to the company for them to make it right.

Posting a picture of the dubia next to the dragon will help us too in telling you if it's too risky.

I've had some bigger ones too. I've found that if I feed them to him, he will rip it in half, then eat the other half when he's done chewing. It's kinda gross when the green goo comes out of them though :roll:
