Im just having a pair of 3 months old baby beardie.. Male is eating a lot around 13 small dubias whilst the female only eat less i.e 1 cricket and 1 dubia and some few little pieces of choy sum. Is the female considered normal? Just a bit worried with the female beardie..

No she needs to be eating more ---- are you housing the dragons together? If so please separate them --- the male is probably dominating all the food if they are together -- make sure you have good UVB NO coils please and getting basking temps of 105-110 w/ a digital probe thermometer -- the probe needs to sit where the dragon sits to bask that is actual surface temp -- basking bulb needs to be a CLEAR bright white bulb NO colored bulbs No heat mats or rocks please if you need more help please ask

Hello,

If you have pictures of your tank setup, along with your two dragons, please post them. Also, just so we can
see the setup & arrangement of lighting, etc.
As Karrie suggests, it really is best to house dragons separately. They can become pretty dominant, especially as
they get older depending on the gender of them, etc.
