So my dad just bought 50 mealworms as feeders for my beardie.From my research i heard that mealworms can cause my baby 2 month old to be impacted because they are hard to digest for my beardie so is it as big of a issue as to confront my dad about or should i not confront him and just let my guy eat them

They can be O.K as a small part of the diet but not as a staple feeder. It's important that your dragon is big enough and that you have proper heat and uvb for digestion. Dragons that are larger than 7" seem to do O.K with a few mealies every few days but it's important to have other feeders like appropriate sized dubia roaches, crickets, silkworms + bsfl.

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!
