Default Beardie Poo!

Sorry to ask, but is white poo normal for a baby beardie?

I got my Baby beardie on Saturday. He ate two crickets when we got home, nothing since. Temps all ok in viv, including hot spot and cool areas, he moves around and picks different places to hang out but generally sleeps a lot!

Noticed two small poos but looks like ive dropped a blob of tippex in there!

Ive got some pics on here DSCF0987 - A photo shared by PhotoBox member Angela Jackson - a public album shared on Photobox, the UK's leading digital photo service.

some pics are tiny some new ones with digi cam so you can see how big he is. A few friends of mine seem to think hes younger than 12 weeks because of his size?

Thanks all

Angela x

The white substance in your dragons toilet is urates (urine). They have one opening (vent) which is where the feces and urine come out. A healthy excrement should be brown in colour with the urate on one end, if the excrement is covered with a jelly looking layer and is a tad watery you know your dragon is well hydrated .

Dragons can only digest and defacate sufficiently if theyre husbandry is spot on. Temperatures are crucial to this.

Thanks Jackie, thats exactly what my beardies first poo with me looks like so im quite pleased! Hope he carries on this way! I haven't ever seen him drink yet, so was getting worried, but he seems happy, alert and shedding well already!

You are more than welcome .

It has been suggested that beardies don't tend to drink 'still' water so such. Our girl will drink bath water . They also can absorb moisture through they're skin. If you bath your dragon frequently enough he should be fine with hydration.

agreed with the above about poops ect seems pretty normal!!! but.......

is your beardie on wood chips??? if soo kinda big eeeek! lol as if he is you could have a huge problem with impaction!!!! especially in babies!!! if he accidently eats one of the wood chips when diving for a cricket/locust his little digestive system can become blocked and that means trip to the vets..... if he makes it that long! sorry to kinda be the bringer of bad news but... think its best you know now rather than find out later when there is a problem!

Best thing to have your baby on is paper towel it can be easily changed and mean his environment is clean plus you can easily see his poos to monitor them and spot clean where he does it! when he gets older he can move onto sand if you want, and a lot of people suggest child playsand that is sieved and washed! hope this helps!!!
