WHat i find with Helio is she poops around 10am (same time every day) after eating. SO she will eat, poop the following day, then eat then poop etc.

When you give him/her a warm bath, stimulate near the base of the tail where its fatter in smooth circles, Helio did not poop for 2 weeks when she was ill, done that and it all came out lol not a pleasant thing but it cleared her blockage and now shes right as rain again =)

how old is she ?
what are your temps like?
what substrate is he on?

your basking temp needs to be about 105f
if its not that then he might not be digesting his food properly
a warm bath may help (baby warm up to his sholders) keep his head up above water and just in front of his vent rub his tummy going in little circles this should help
give a warm bath today dont wait till tomorrow as tomorrow never comes

Don't forget you've just got her, she may be a little stressed to let things out lol. I wouldn't worry unduly yet as she's eating so this is a good sign. Babies poop every day and as they get older this decreases with adults sometimes only going once a week or more.

She's about 10 weeks old.
Temps are great, checking them all the time : victory:
She's on a lino type flooring, looks like sand and gravel and has a good texture.. No loose substrate :2thumb:

hey there, when my beardie was a baby, it took about 2days for her to poo after I got her, she then went on to have poo after poo and it was neverending lol, but was never on a set routine or anything, it just happened when it happened, although she was already eating greens when I Purchased her so maybe thats why she was so good at pooping,shes a year old now and the story is very diff, she NEVER poos in her viv anymore, the only time she will poo is when I put her in a warm bath and rub her belly!
