I am slightly concerned about my beardy's eyesight although Im not sure if it's an eyesight issue, a learned behavior, or me simply overthrinking.

Her two favorites are crickets and blueberries, but it seems that she either wont eat outside of her tank or that she needs the heavy lighting of her tank to see what's being held by her? I can usually feed her crickets outside of the tank, but for example she wouldnt touch the blueberries i had while she was sitting with me. She devoured them hastily when put in her tank.

In addition, she is occasionally fed freeze dried crickets while I am waiting on live insects. If I point to them, she devours them. If I leave them be, she doesnt touch them. Theyre brown crickeys sitting in a brown/tan bowl, so Im not sure if it's an eyesight thing or if it's a learned behavior of me being present while she eats live insects? She doesn't do this with greens, but theyre bright green leaves sitting in a brown bowl.

My guess is that it's a behavior because it is fairly common. My dragon also wants me to point to food and sometimes poke it to give it some movement before he digs in. Less of an issue when he is very hungry.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
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.
