Hornworms

Soo I went to feed my beardie and I noticed that one of her hornworms turned into pupa. My father and I are trying to figure out what we should do with it. Does anyone know if the moth will lay eggs on its own or just end up dying? We are unsure what to do with it but if someone could help us it'd be great!

You can also feed the moth if your dragon is big enough.
I don't think the moths reproduce on their own. I usually just let them go.

My beardies about 11 months old right now, would it be ok for her to eat? I don't want her to end up choking on it wether it's a pupa or moth.

The pupa is hard, i probably wouldn't feed her that, the month is soft bodied that should be ok

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 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
