My baby bearded is picky as can be and will only eat small phoenix worms, will not chase crickets no matter what I do and only eats the greens if I hand feed them. She only likes her bath if its in the big tub not some container or sink and gets mad if i mess with her cage at all. Her basking temp can not be over 105 or under 104 or she wont go near it either. She was 5.5in when I got her 2 weeks ago and last night after she finally passed out wrapped in a burrito i measureed her again. She is now 6.25in and her tail is shedding again!! After all this worry with her I have to be doing something right for her to grown 3/4 of an inch in 2 weeks lol. Now if she would just stop making me go crazy over her pickyness. Her name is Persnickety meaning excessive precision and attention to trivial details.

Sounds to me like she is turning you into her very own personally Beardie slave :) But that's not a bad thing at all :)

That's great that she's grown so much! Brutus would shed once or twice every month. They sure do grow fast! Persnickety is a great name! Seems to fit her perfectly! hehe.

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!
