HELP with babies

Not open for further replies.


Hi all,
My babies are 5 days old and are scared to death of the crickets. We have only put a few in each time trying to get them to eat but they start breathing fsater and start running around the cage. I have tried to offer ones that I kill to se if they would eat them that way, and still nothing. PLEASE can I get some advice.
Thank you, Denise

Are the crickets small enough? The need to be no longer than the space between your dragons' eyes. You could also try putting the crickets in the fridge for a few minutes - the cold will slow them down so that they will still move and appeal to your dragons' hunting instincts without being fast enough to intimidate them. Some people have pulled the back legs off their crickets and put them in a bowl so that the crickets couldn't jump out and the dragons were free to check them out on their own terms. Good luck!

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.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
