I think he's just a bit sucky baby :)
My female adult beardie won't eat unless I hand feed her...and if I don't, she'll just sit there watching the food and then looking at me.
I don't believe there's much you can, but just kinda go along with the flow. Just apprecaite a beardie that loves you so much :)

:My BD isn't eating much. I am treating him for hookworms, but making sure he is getting a lot of water.

:He WILL eat when I hand feed him. Ever since I bought 100 mealworms he won't touch his salad. I bought some silkworms and he'll eat those too. Just not his salad. He will eat a few crickets too, but not as much as he use to.

:My BD is 232g. and 8 months.

:Could he be addicted to mealworms/silkworms? Or just likes to be hand fed. I even tried hand feeding salad..but nope.
:I tried putting a silkworm in with the salad. He can right down and ate the silk...then when up and basked after. The little bugger.

:Should I just feed him mealworms or silks for a while. Or stop feeding works all together. I can do that becuase he is on meds....and may not eat his salad.

:Any suggestions......again he is getting lots of water.

:Thanks,
:Liz
