Hi, found this in my beard's poop today... does he have worms? They were not moving... he's been eating crickets, BSFL, dubia roaches, kale, collard greens, and zucchini. Please help :cry:

Those look like tapeworms. You can take a sample to your vet or just show them that pic. The other thing that it loos like is cricket eggs. Does your dragon eat large crickets and any freeze dried ?

OMG it was cricket eggs! I thought for sure it was going to be something bad, but I looked in the cricket bin and there were the same things in there, and then I looked up cricket eggs and yep. Also I've gone back to dubia roaches and they weren't in his poop this time! So glad that wasn't some terrible issue <3

Hello

This is very common but if you don't know what to look for then it is a bit surprising.
So you have this all figured out now?
Crickets when they are ingested if they are females with eggs will pass through their
system.
