I just bought a baby beardie about 4 days ago and he is still getting use to his surrounding area, but he wont eat! Especially if my boyfriend or I are in the room. I know not to stress out because he is young and so new but I cant help it. Hes only pooped once and I have left some crickets in the tank yesterday and when I came back they were gone! Which is great, but how do I start getting him to trust me enough so I can feed him properly? Also, He loves his climbing wall and usually doesn't come down from it at all, will this pass? I am concerned because he isn't basking at all :(

Im in the same boat, got mine only last week, and he's only lil, I think he's been at the veg, as most of its gone when I get home, but cricks he will only take 2 or 3. Think I'll pop down and get some "small" ones tomorrow and see how he does.

I know it might sound a tad cruel but cud I just not give him cricks for a few days (2tops) and then pop some in?

(sorry for the thread hijack :|)

No - you need to offer crix daily at that age. They all have a settling in period and this is standard behaviour. What size crix are you offering?

You need ones about 3~5 mm in length for a baby, anything larger can cause problems.

my baby beardie took around a week to settle in (he was just over 8 weeks when i got him) , for the first 5 days he picked at bits of rocket / spinich mix and took 2- 3 2nd size black crickets and wouldnt come off his rock , but now hes on 20 2nd size black crickets plus around half a bowl of spinach / rocket mix and he has eaten mini mealworms and he is proper active and already taking food out my hand just shows what a couple of days does for them !!
