Beardie Bathroom Help - At Wits End

Hello All,

I am at my wits end and hoping someone can help me out here. My beardie (Spud) refuses to poop in her own terrarium and has chosen my carpeted floor as her choice spot. I have been trying to wait until she uses the restroom in her own home before taking her out but this makes me feel like a bad pet owner. Today she chose my gaming pad to defecate on and honestly I just don't know what to do. I've cut out softer texture and placed it in her terrarium for her to use, same as my carpet and she still won't. If I don't take her out then I feel she isn't getting that out of cage time. Someone else had suggested a different material, like work mat, but anything else in the meantime would be appreciated.

Thank you for any help. :cry:

Its probably not the material, some dragons simply do not like to go in their cage.
Have you tried a warm shallow bath before free time? My dragon always goes in the water. Easy clean up.
If you don't want him pooping in the bathtub, get a shallow plastic bin and you can dump the waste and water down the toilet.

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
I don't own Swordtail anymore. He owns me
Swordtail is being the chonky turd he is
