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 am new and looking for a teen beardie. I have been doing a lot of research for about 2 years.
I'm new here but not new to dragons or snakes. Over the 7 years. I opened my heart and home to neglected. unwanted dras and snakes, some critical conditions. Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
