Hey guys! So I got my beardie about 2 months ago. I’m thinking she is about 3/4 months but I am not 100% sure. She LOVES her greens and eats them every day no problem but is picky when it comes to bugs? Now I am feeding her crickets, wax worms, and the occasional hornworms. Also I’m saying picky but what I mean is that she will go 1-2 days without touching any bugs or only eating a couple. I try to tong feed her and I try to let her hunt but she just acts so uninterested. Then after those 1-2 days she wants to eat so many worms/crickets like I’m starving her! She’s never been super food motivated anyways. I just want to know if anyone has had to deal with this kind of thing? Any advice is great!

She doesnt like crickets --- please get her over on dubia roaches they are a better feeder anyway -- horn worms are good for a treat and a hydrating worm -- please feed the wax worms sparingly they are really fatty and too many and long term can cause liver damage -- www.dubiaroaches.com

Ok thank you! I’ve been thinking about trying those but all the ones I’ve came across in the store seem a little too big for her! Are the dubia roaches an ok full time food I’m guessing?

dubias are great staple feeders --- go by the chart on the website for size for them -- no bigger than the space between her eyes--- the BSFL come in small medium and large - at 3 months they can eat the large they are a small larvae and are soft - keep in the dirt they come in - if they turn to flies at any point feed them they are still good --

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
