i was under the impression that super worms and meal worms were bad for baby dragons but now im not sure. I looked a bit more and it seems that only mealworms have the hard chitin. then i saw that superworms are fatty so they shouldnt be fed super often. Im kind of confused now so if someone could tell me that would be great. if i can feed them how often and how many should i feed? reggie is 3 months old.

You can feed him 1-3 size appropriate every couple of days -- you can drop them on is salads

My thoughts on superworms are pretty much inline with what I wrote about mealworms up above.

Superworms are actually the staple insect for my adult dragons, and have been for decades.

That was another good read, so much that you (and Cooperdragon) say seems it should be common sense, makes me wonder how in the world some of the crazy ideas people have, came to be.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg.
