My 2yr old beardie will only eat Morio worms, ignores roaches, crickets etc. Doesnt seem to eat much salad either? He seems healthy enough though. Any thoughts or advice welcome x

He needs a good balanced diet- super worms are a treat worm and it's like feeding candy- more salads and a staple feeder- try silk worms or calci worms- those are staple feeders - what type of greens are you feeding

Welcome to the forum! You may have to wait him out a bit. If you're feeding often, wait a day or so then offer something different. When he's good and hungry he should be more open to alternatives

Generally a mixture which I vary but including Spinach, rocket,butternut squash, pak Choi,courgette, different types of lettuce and mixed Leaves, peppers. Will try calci or silk worms.
I have kept giving him Morio as I would rather r he ate something rather than nothing….
