Hello I've had my Bearded Dragon for several months now, she's around 10 months old and she's been fine with veggies before. But now she won't eat any! And I think she's cutting down on the amount of livefood that she eats too because there's lots in her vivarium that she doesn't eat. For veggies I've tried: dandelion leaves, grapes, strawberries, watercress, peas and carrots. I've looked things up and it says to try things like apples and pepper. Has anyone got any more suggestions about what's wrong with her or what veggies I could try? Thanks :)

This is probably the best thing to check against. I have a colour copy printed out on top of Tia's viv - http://www.beautifuldragons.com/Nutritionframeset.html

They seem to do this at times for no apparent reason, other times it's usually a sign that they're about to shed and if she's off all her food it's more likely shedding (or possibly the weather). If she's still off food after a couple more weeks then think about getting a fecal float done as intestinal parasites will also have this effect.

Thank you everyone, the colour coded chart was especially useful! Should I be worried? She's acting fine but I think that she hates being in the viv because when I've had her out of it and then put her back in she hides under the heater and just ignores the locusts and crickets jumping on and around her. Thanks for all your help :)

So it's fine? She's not eating absolutely anything! What you've all said is very reassuring though :D

Felix is hit and miss with his greens and that's even after with holding livefood!
He does like a bit of butternut squash and the odd raspberry now and again. They seem to like dandelion flowers as well :mrgreen:

I pretty sure she ate all her dandelion leaves today! And she's looking happy and healthy now, I think that she's just about better now maybe :) Thanks everyone!
