I wanted to elaborate a little about these toxic insects. If a beardie eats a spider or bee, it's usually not as much of a concern as if they are stung or bitten. We are 99% sure that one of our beardies was stung by a wasp which we found in the same room as her tank. She went into anaphylactic shock which was terrible to witness, she suffered terribly but at the time, we didn't know what the problem was. She passed at the vets office and after we brought her home, we discovered a red raised area on her back foot. She passed away within 12 hours and was completely healthy when she went to bed. This is the reason we wanted to get the word out so all of the owners can be vigilant in destroying any of these insects or bees right away.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
