oh dear! depends on how big the plant is! but i think the vet will need a visit soon to check her out! in the mean time remove all other things that can be ate which she's not supposed to be eating

Hi thought id reply to u as no one else has im afraid it may not be good news sorry to be so blunt sat here for a while trying to think how to break it gently im not quite sure why people think that putting plastic plant in with a rep that is part herbivore is ok the beardie will definatly need to see a vet
im not sure how to go about this post (pauses to think)...........

If the little fella has defo ingested a plastic plant then i think that the chances i him/her passing it is slim but defo take it to a vet

I think i'll post a thread about this

sorry to not be that possitive but defo take any thing plastic outta the viv as beardies do test things with there mouth and a plant looks like a plant to them

VET VET VET.

It's really important that you get your BD to the vet ASAP as they may be able to help it before it's too late and impaction occurs or something.

Stay calm but please get your BD to the vet. Your best bet will be to take it to a reptile specialist vets as a domestic vet center will just tell you to wait and see if it would pass anything but by then it wil be too late.

defo needs a vet, i know someone whos african bullfrog did exactly the same thing.. threw its guts up completely so its stomach etc was out of his mouth.. vets had him sat in some water and removed all the plant.. somehow the frog sucked its guts back in and made a recovery fine but they are hardy frogs, i would get to a vet asap.
