Out of feeders! What to do?

Postby RaineSky » Wed Dec 13, 2017 5:43 am

I'm going to be out of feeder insects for approximately 36 hours, as long as there are no more delays in receiving my shipment. Is there anything else I can give him in the meantime until they arrive or will he be okay with just his veggies?
He's approximately 14 weeks old. Purchased him from petsmart and they had no idea how old he was. I've had him for around 6 weeks and he has put on a good bit of weight and I don't want him to be miserable like he was when he was there.

At that age, daily insects are pretty necessary. You said you bought him from Petsmart — any chance you can buy some crickets there to tide him over?

One day is not going to hurt him a bit so just offer a nice bowl of veggies. You can also offer scrambled egg. One egg scrambled in a bowl with no oil, 1 minute in the microwave and just offer a few small dime sized pieces. Some dragons love them, others not so much. If your shipment doesn't come or is dead then you can try the store.

Thank you! The tracking says that it's still on schedule... He just keeps looking at me and making me feel guilty.

You're lucky he's just looking at you. When my beardie gets hungry, she starts nipping the nearest human.
