Hi, newbie here !

I have just got my first bearded dragon and after reading up on it all had settled on a 4ft viv as recommened by the store.

having had the baby a week now he has only eaten twice, on the first day he settled and ate well then the follow days he did not eat and after this he then ate 2 medium locust. . . and this was about 3 days ago.

Is this normal, should I try different foods? but locust is what he was eating in the shop ?

any help please ?

thank you
Tony

not tried crickets so will give that a go, has vegetables available to him such as rockets, mixed green leaves, carrot all finely chopped. . . but he doesnt seem to be interested - any ideas to get him trying veg ? I ahve held it near him but no luck. . .

checked heat temps and hot end is 40c and cold end is about 28c

Mine never eats his vegetables either, he did once because we had none left and he had to wait till the afternoon so i could get some and he was hungry and ate them, but always supply because they do have the occasional nibble
