Not sure. And he needs to learn how to hunt for his own food as he can become very lazy and then he wouldn't want to do anything since he will rely on someone hand feeding him. It is best recommend unless if they are injured or a rescue and need to be hand fed, it is best for them to catch them on their own

I agree with Hazel, work on increasing the activity level of your beardie. Most commonly, laziness is due to the lack of stimulation for the brain… in other words boredom, what size is you enclosure?

A bigger enclosure grants more space to explore, the bare minimum for a bearded dragon is 120 gallons and Id still consider that small, especially for an adult. I’d suggest upwards to a 200 gallon enclosure!

Completely agree my tank is a 120 gallon which is plenty of room for my beardie as she has a stunted growth but it depends on how big you dragon is

i dont know the exact measurements because his tank was built by my moms friend, but i know for a fact it is big enough for him to roam around, and at times he does roam around but he always ignores the salad that is there, but i'll check in with the vet because he has an appointment today for a check up, though i feel like he got too spoiled, do you guys know any methods in to motivating a beardie to eat their salad? because he does hunt bugs on his own at times but im mostly worried that he wont eat the veggies.

Okay. You can put a little bee pollen,BSFL, or a little honey on the salads.

Yes they are edible for humans and animals and are high in calcium, iron and other good things.

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
