How can I get Clapton interested in his greens, veggies & fruits? Since I brought him home he hasn't even gone near the dish. I've been giving him spring mix topped w/ pears or strawberries.

It's hard with young dragons, you just have to keep trying. Offer them every day, eventually he'll eat them.

I think I am going to set up a camera near Thor's tank. He doesn't let me watch either!

Also, maybe anyone else cane chime in with more info, but I struggled for little over a year to even get Thor to eat veggies. But eventually, he just switched, and now he eats veggies mostly regularly.

If you use a camera, try to get one that doesn't have the infrared for night time. I think they can see that light and it stresses them. I used to try to set my security cameras up to watch mine and no matter where I put it Chomp would hide from it. She would go so far as to dig her way under the mat to get away from it. Zen generally tried to hide from it as well, but he didn't freak out as bad as Chomp did.

I actually use nightlights through my apartment, so I think I would just plug one in near his home. That way I don't need nighttime recording. But thanks for the heads up. I didn't think of that.

That's interesting. I wonder what it looks like to them? Some sort of natural predator, I guess.

Im not sure what it looks like to them, but I do know they can see spectrums of light we can't.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
