Do Dubia from Different Suppliers Taste Different?

Figment has shunned dubia for about a year now… be suddenly “switched off” and wouldn’t touch them. I’ve tried offering them on a few occasions, and he snubbed them every time. I buy from dubia.com - and when buying small quantities, that’s expensive.

Yesterday I went to a reptile expo and, figuring it was time to try him with dubia again, bought 25 from a vendor. Figment inhaled them. No hesitation- they were gone!

So my question is… could Figment just have developed an aversion to dubia.com bugs? Is there a chance that different producers result in slightly different flavored bugs?

Or is my dragon trying to gaslight me?!?

They can go through phases where they get tired of the same ol thing. After a short break they may be excited to see something they haven't had in awhile. Variety is key and they know it.

You can always get him some silk worms for a change too - that might help - I am not a fan of crickets - are you offering super worms or horn worms ?

I've been rotating between silkworms (too expensive for often), mealworms, giant mealworms, and superworms. Horn worms only as a treat. If he'll open up to dubia again, that would be a relief. I don't do crickets... too smelly, short lived, and possible pinworm carriers.

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
