    Bug strike

    My close to 10 month old beardie, Haku, has been such a stickler for veggies. He never eats them. He used to snack on the occasional carrots and bell pepper, but now it seems like he’s gone on veggie strike. I’ve been giving him slurries but it doesn’t seem to help in any way. I got advice from...

    Are black soldier flies nutritous or are they like the lettuce of the insects?

    I'm talking about the actual black soldier flies and not the BSFL. My beardie loves eating the flies but can't find much infomation on if they're a staple and healthy or should be avoided. Please let me know what you think! Thank you in advance! <3

    Feeding questions for new baby

    Hello all! I am still doing research on when I get a new baby (from a breeder). I'm just so torn and confused about which insects to get for him. 1. I'm leaning towards Dubia roaches, but to be as cost-efficient on shipping (from sites such as Dubiaroaches.com), how many do I get and how...

    Beardie with a Silver Spoon

    It started about 18 months ago when I was desperately trying to get Sticky to eat more vegetables and fewer bugs. She simply refused - for weeks - to eat, so I started spoon feeding her pureed vegetables. She seems to love this. I give her live prey from time to time, and monitor her weight. I...

    Beardie will only eat Greens

    Hey everyone, I’m relatively new to having a beautiful little bearded friend so I hope this isn’t a stupid question! I can’t seem to find any help online anywhere, if it’s a bizarre one the next stop is a vet!! So I’ve had baby Maggie since October 2021, at this point I was told she was...

    Super Worms?

    Hello! I've had my dragon for around 4 weeks now and I've been regularly feeding him super worms as his main course. He just turned a year old a little less than a week ago so I was searching how many to feed him now but I came across something. There were a few websites that said super worms...

    Hypothetical Feeder Insect Frequency?

    To preface, this isn't a 'how often should I feed x' kind of question. This is more of a hypothetical. For the sake of this question, assume you have an adult beardie who you feed 10 gut loaded (w/ veg, not protein to avoid excess uric acid) dubia roaches the generally suggested 2-3 times a...

    Can packaged beardie pellets be fed daily?

    I have a juvenile bearded dragons who is about 4 months old, and I recently discovered that I can’t feed mealworms daily (the person at the pet stores told me to feed mealworms daily before). So I saw the bearded dragon food that came in the set and claims it has all the nutrients needed, I...

    Bearded Dragon not eating.

    I have a 1+ year old male bearded dragon who has not been eating for the last 2 weeks. I have tried everything from changing his lighting to coaxing him with meal worms, but he simply refuses to eat. The good news is that he still seems active and alert, though he also has a problem with glass...

    Insects that don’t jump?

    Please excuse the newbie! So I’ve realised I can’t stand bugs that fly and jump (crickets, locusts, flies etc.). I also realise that most worms can’t form part of a regular staple diet. I have a 3 month old baby beardie who’s a bit of a salad dodger but does manage some (as expected for his...

    Dragon Delite

    So I found this dry food at a reptile supply store in my area. You actually soak it and it gets a spongy kind of texture that is supposed to imitate live food texture. I've been feeding it to my guy about twice a week with salads and bugs all the other days. I don't see anything glaringly...
