ok so my beardie Zora is eleven months old 284g and 10 1/2" from nose to very large tail nip but that is not what is bothering me ... ever since its gotten warm enough to take her back outside she has started eating dirt ... and when i say the i don't mean just in passing no she looks for it and gets very agitated when i won't let her eat it .. she doesn't get aggressive she is just not like that but you can tell she is not pleased .
What I'm wandering is why she keeps eating dirt. i supplement her vitamins and her calcium so she shouldn't be deficient i just was wandering if anyone else had this issue

Gosh. I know that in certain areas of the country, humans boil and eat dirt. Never have seen my dragons do it, though.

Well i can tell you she goes at it pretty good i just wish i could understand why i know she gets enough to eat because she is my little butterball

I hope other folks chime in on this. If she has plenty of food and supplements, I don't really understand the behavior, either.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank

Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
