My bearded dragon is about two years old and seems pretty healthy. Recently, he’s been skipping meals, always wanting out, running around the house and outside, etc. I think it’s mating season? I currently give him dubia roaches, usually dusted but I also have mealworms and super worms for treats. He hasn’t been interested in any, he just wants to run around and go outside. I potty trained him somehow so that he only poops in warm water but now he‘ll do it anywhere (except his terrarium so far). He does eats his greens fairly well. So far he hasnt head bobbed or anything. Is this normal? What do I do? How do I get him to eat? (He loves blueberries but might skip them too when in his running frenzy)

This kind of behavior could be many causes --
Too small of a tank
Improper basking temps tank top hot
Improper uvb coils are not good
Or just plain spring fever
Please go over your set up so we can start ruling these things out

Being a young male it's very possible that he has the urge to wander, in the wild he would be looking for a mate. But the other things that Karrie mentioned can also come in to play so do post pics of your set up.

I think you're right, season, mine went through that around that age, let them run as much as possible to burn the energy lol. I used to roll blueberries across the floor so they would chase! Exercise is always good. Even if they're not interested in food right now, kind of like little kids they go through phases and will eat when hungry. Try to switch up the variety of fruits or veggies, color matters, my dragons always enjoy red, peppers or fruits, may help intrigue them and get their attention.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
