Somehow the crickets I put in Sandy's tank to eat escaped? I have some cardboard along the side of the tank for privacy during egg time but it backfired.. does anybody know what to do? Will they cause an infestation? Will they breed? I have no idea how many escaped but I'm hoping not many. o_O

Try your best to catch as many as you can. Other than that leave a small plastic lid with something for them to eat like greens [ not the cricket quencher though, it's bad for dragons ] so they don't bother Sandy. She should be fine.

Thank you. I had no idea that cricket quencher was bad for dragons! We caught around 4-5 mostly in the kitchen/hallway area. Its around 76*F so hopefully they will not breed if any are left over.

They can't breed in your house unless it's around 80F and they have a substrate like sand/soil or maybe a potted plant. Almost all reptile owners have had a crickets escape, myself included , and they just disappear or die after a couple of days or weeks. In the beardie's tank they can breed if there's a warm, damp substrate but it's still VERY unlikely.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
