Water intake for babies

Postby Abberry » Thu Nov 26, 2020 10:48 am

My baby beardie, 5 inches, is not interested in water bowl. I’ll try bathing but how many times should I mist him to prevent dehydration?
I mist salads but he isnt really interested in the salads, going to try putting bsfl on top.
Is misting ok or should I use the dropper on the nose?

I prefer the dropper on nose method.

I do use a spray bottle, but I depress the trigger very slowly so that the water just drips out of the nozzle as opposed to spraying.

I use the drops on the nose too. The frequency needed varies. If he is eating a lot of bugs that are hydrated, he probably doesn't need a lot extra. Watch his poops. If they look dry or chalky then he may need some extra water. If they are good consistency and even if they have some extra water passing through with them, then he is getting enough.
