I fed Rocky sweet potatoes and then I came here afterwards....I was supposed to shred it. UGH. I don't have any concerns with shredding, however, I gave sweet potatoes to Rocky in tiny cubes which I am sure will take longer to digest. He tore it up!!!!!! Rocky is a MAN, I am toughening him up---okay, the truth is that I simply messed up. I knew I should've double checked. If Rocky is acting fine and poops fine, is shredding a requirement? Rocky is knocking on the door of 8 months.
Of course, I am handfeeding Rocky so there were no concerns while eating as I would've seen it.
Rocky wants more but before doing so, please advise.

I would think that a tiny cube is totally fine and normal - when I give my girl butternut squash it’s been in little slices of it.

as long as the cubes aren't to big it should be fine. Did he chew them up?

Yes, every bit and he pooped. He actually passed gas too// I said OOOO you finally made a noise!!!! We were at my friend's house so when the wiggle came, I had to hold paper towel under his butt so it didn't get on her carpet. It was healthy-
No strain- not too watery. It's small cubes and he chewed it a lot before swallowing. I love how gentle he is when removing it from my hand (unlike the last time). I was thinking YOU CAN SEE ORANGE, make a note (there's a post about colors that beardies can see) lol

That's awesome, thanks for letting me know. Can you repost the picture? I missed it.
