My littel fella has got so big so fast gave me his first beard and big mouth yesterday he is shedding so can't blame him for being grumpy. Q guys he is not eating his veg he is five months should I look to giving live food every other day or keep putting greens in and wait a little longer. He will wait all day for his live food he may be eating it when I'm not looking but have not seen him do you think he's playing me lol.

I think the people who have Beardies that gobble their veggies up are very very lucky :lol: My Therru will have a munch now and again and other times its flung all over the viv :lol: :lol: but he is eating his hoppers now :lol: :lol: a box every 3rd day and Im happy with that. But every morning first thing I still put a variety of greens/fruit/and other veggies and its great if he eats it but if not the hoppers get it ; so it doesn't get wasted :) so I would say you can try holding off with live but I think you will give in first (you can put some Morios on top of the veg nd he will get a bit of veg as he goes for them) but don't worry as long as he still puts on wait :) Put his weight on; and one of the experts can tell you whether its time to try every other day with live food :)

He's still small so I wouldn't reduce his live food yet, not until he gets to around 200gm + . As for veg it looks like you'll just have to persevere .
