Hi! I posted Haku’s daily routine a bit ago and I’ve gotten positive feedback which is always nice to hear. But now I have a problem, he won’t eat his bugs in the morning.
As I said previously, he is 8 months and a real stickler when it comes to greens. He will eat veggies like carrots and bell peppers, but anything that’s green he will refuse to eat. So, to get him introduced to greens so he’ll eat them when he gets older, I started making green juice that I sprinkle on the bugs and when he takes a bite of the bug I sneak the syringe in his mouth and put some green juice in.
During his second feeding he doesn’t get the greens or calcium, just pure bugs and he has no problem eating them. But he started getting really stingy with his first feeding. I think I may have accidentally given him a negative correlation with morning feedings with greens.. So now he won’t take a bite of the bugs in the mornings. What should I do? He has been stubborn with greens for so long and the only thing that works for him doesn’t work anymore, and he won’t eat his bugs in the mornings now! I’ve tried everything else I could possibly think of. Bee pollen, fruit, bugs in the salad, he just won’t take them. Help!

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?
