My beardie got excited when I pulled out the silkworm colony and he ate one of the worm feeder cubes along with one of the silkworms, should I be concerned?

He’s a little over 12 inches, a little over 11 years old. Always been extremely healthy

about half the feeder cube smooshed out of the side of his mouth and I took it before he could try again. So I’m not really concerned about the amount but more making sure there’s nothing in it that could be harmful.

He should be fine, try to be careful next time though. Are you sure he's only 12" at 11 yrs. old ? Or is his tail broke off .

Yes, he’s fully grown but was much smaller than his siblings even at birth. He’s about 5-10% smaller than the average beardie. He has his full tail.

I’m not sure, when I was young I got him from a local breeder. He was the first in his litter to be adopted because I thought it was cute that he was “the runt” out of the 7 or so I chose from he was obviously smaller although they were siblings.

I think around 12 inches is where the rankins max out, thats the reason i asked. It would be interesting to see his siblings and see what size they are for comparison.

A breeder would 100 % know and tell you if it was a Rankin's because they are much more rare and a specialty lizard. It's possible that your dragon is even a little bit larger than your estimate so if you measure him you'll know for sure. Can you post a pic of him ?

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
