I'm withholding bugs from my dragons, who both don't eat their salads, It's day 5, still no interest in the salads..
Both dragons are a healthy weight and are 2 years old.

Both Vivarium specs

Basking spot is 40C, cool end is 26C
Vivs are 5 x 2 x 2
No parasites


I can get both of them to eat salad if I put silk worms on the salad, as their feet stick to the veg. Could I do this twice weekly as a sufficient way to get veg into them? But they aren't interested if there are no worms on the salad
It will be expensive getting silkworms as their staple feeder but I don't see another way

Keep doing what you are doing. They won't let themselves starve to death. Once they get hungry enough they will eat the salad. Once they start eating their salads you can start introducing bugs again.

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!
