    I had a friend who decided they can no longer care for this big fella. I believe it's because the boyfriend is afraid of all things with scales, but alas I have no proof. I learned that they were primarily feeding him pumpkin purée because "he refused to eat anything else". Anyone have any experience with expanding their diet? I offered him some Dubias and he didn't know how to catch them.

    One thing that got my brothers picky dragon eating everything was waxworms. For the longest time, she wouldn't eat much, but then Caleb got some waxworms. she loved those, and started to develop an appetite for other things.

    He is awesome! I LOVE all reptilians!
    I'd have some, if I did not have fish already, and the research of reptilian habitats did not kind of scare me :)

    I really hope he stops stressing soon. I don't see any stress lines on his belly but he is near constantly sporting mostly black in his beard and sides. I got him to eat some super worms but he won't touch his veggies.

    You can try placing some superworms (or anything else he likes) on to the veggies.
