So Ralph hasn't been eating his salad in the morning for about a week now. Instead he waits until its been sitting in his cage all day and is dry...then he gobbles it up :? I've tried giving him fresh again at night but he won't touch it and I'm not really sure what's up with that.

My Nim used to like the crunchy greens. He loves them either way. Dry or fresh. I guess some beardies like dry greens.

Sometimes Brick does that too! I wonder if they like the crunch? I'm just glad he's (sometimes) eating his mustard greens, even if they are dried out lol. :roll:
His previous owner said he's been doing it for years, so I'm guessing it'll be fine for Ralph too. :) If salad is how he's been getting a lot of his water though, you may want to offer him water from a dropper/needle-less syringe once or twice a day, or give him extra baths. :)
...The things we do for those scaly little rascals! Hehe ;)

He drinks water in his baths so he's pretty easy to get water into. Glad to know he's not weird though :lol: Emerson will eat the crunchy greens but he always eats some in the morning and then finishes the dry ones at night.

Swordtail has been doing a whole lot of "Lizard yoga" lately
Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
