    Hi all,
    We brought home our first lizard, a baby bearded dragon 5 days ago, and while he (she?) eats several crickets a day, he hasn't touched any of the fruits or veggies I've put in the terrerium. Everything is fresh and finely chopped, but hasn't gotten a sniff or a lick, much less eaten,. The water dish also seems mostly ignored. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    kelly

    How young? I wouldn't worry to much. Just keep offering it in small amounts each day Water they drink when they want it. Just keep any eye out. You can feed your lizards pinkie mice too they love them. I don't have bearded dragons as a pet but my dad does. ( i am more the snake gal)We have wild ones here that hatched some babies this year . Was cute.
