Reptiles/Bearded dragon with bit of tail missing


Bearded dragon has been fine today. Think it ate around 50-60 small crickets today. Still showing no interest in the salad. I'm just hoping this guy won't go the same way as my other one, as she ate fine for the first week then stopped eating for 2 weeks

Hello Sarah,

I hope not also!
At least she is eating well right now.  She should begin to eat greens soon, they don't always eat it early on, so just keep offering the greens & hopefully she will start to eat them.
Let me know how she is doing.

I can answer questions pertaining to health, UVB specifics, overall husbandry care & supplementation, analysis of blood test results, and behavioral problems & handling. I can answer questions pertaining to bearded dragons, leopard geckos, iguanas, uromastyx & ball pythons. I can answer adeno virus related questions in bearded dragons, & then specifically about the testing methods as well. I am beginning an Pogona Adeno Testing Society in 2008 which will help to begin to start some standardization within the bearded dragon colonies of the breeders who choose to test.


I have been working with bearded dragons for over 5 years now, as well as leopard geckos, too. I am currently doing rescues, as well. I hope to be able to educate people prior to them purchasing an exotic pet in order to avoid any health crisis with them.

I have a master's degree in sports medicine & physiology, & 1 year of vet tech schooling, & am currently working on a reptile certification through the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.
