Smile Sorry For Your Lose

He ate a couple of crickets and meal worms on friday, but since then he has ate spreadically, and isnt interested in the crickets offered to him since.

He is about 4 - 5 weeks of age, is there any tips that people might be able to offer us to try and start to get him into a decent routine.

He is fairly active throughout the day, and gets plenty of light, heat and important UV, and isnt overheating, as far as we can tell, so we are just a little stumped, and in everything we have read, this scenario is never fully explained.

Kind regards

HI, first of all sorry to hear about your lose, but what i would like to say on that subject is that a pet shop/exotic supplier should not be selling beardies at that young of an age i personally found it ing amazing that someone would sell one so young. R.I.P our little friend.
Its nice to here your having more luck with this one and i hope all goes well for you and you get as much enjoyment out of your beardie as i have so for had out of mine
