Exactly how much should a baby beardie eat?
Sorry for all my bearded dragon posts lately! Dont worry, theyll stop one of these days...
Anyway, I was wondering exactly how much Wink should be eating everyday. I feed him romain lettuce (trying some kale today), meal worms, and crickets.
But when I dont have crickets, all he wants to eat is lettuce because he doesnt like mealies very much. I put his calcium supplement on his lettuce so at least he is still getting his vitamins, but Im worried that he isnt eating enough. I try to get him to eat his meal worms, and sometimes he will eat a couple, but sometimes he wont eat any.
I need to get more crickets (they all escaped somewhere in my room...) and Im really worried about how picky he is being about his food. He even eats dead crickets, but all he does is lick the meal worms. Is it bad if he mostly eats lettuce/other veggies on a few days here and there? Or is there some way to get him to eat more meal worms? I dont want him to go hungry...
And when I buy crickets, how many should I get, and how many should he eat in a day? Is it ok if he eats the dead crickets too?
Thanks for any help! Im trying my best to take good care of him <3
Hopefully Ill get him a UVB bulb tonight too, since its raining and he cant go outside today.
