I have always wondered about gut loading my question is for example if I gut load my crickets with sweet potato the crickets eat and whatever nutrients the potato has the crickets absorb BUT does your beardie taste the sweet potato too or does the beardie only taste crickets i have used squash regular/sweet potato apples fruit greens and veggies ect I'm currently trying tropical fish flakes but she wont really eat the crickets now which is the only reason why im asking

Any help is appreciated

I gut load my crickets and superworms with
1) buk or puk choi leaves
2) carrot
3) adult bearded dragon pellets ( hard dry type ) - I crumb them for the superworms and mix them with wheat bran.

Crickets only get carrot and adult bearded dragon pellets til a few days before I am ready to use them. They then get the greens added.

NOTE I don't keep all my crickets together in one container - I buy in bulk ( 600 per 2 - 3 weeks ) and break down in 6 - 10 "old Piscus cricket tubs" , this way I protect from odd occasional sick cricket causing a mini - cricket pandemic.

Supers I give the greens left over from supers ,pellets left over from crickets & any greens left by the bluetongues and bearded dragons.

Make sure to replace the carrot and the greens when they go "off".

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
