Hey all, just a quick question.
My Beardie wont eat live crickets. Idk why she just seems to have no interest. So I've been getting her different types of worms for the past few months. She really likes supers, but I was unable to get them this week so I went with giant mealworms. Are these two okay to give her as a staple feeder? They're cheap and easy to get and to feed her, so it's great for me, but are they good for her?

Some variety is best, but they're fine.

A word of caution (may not happen to you); I fed my dragon supers for some variety with his dubias, and he got hooked on the supers. Now he won't eat the dubias, so I'm having to starve him until he does.
:dontknow:

That's a bummer. Hopefully he'll eat soon.

I haven't really notice my girl being at all picky with her food, except for the cricket thing. She'll eat freeze-dried or frozen/thawed crickets just fine, but she'll turn up her nose at live ones.
Also she doesn't like chicory, but I dont blame her. XD

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
