My beardie is 8 months old and today I fed him superworms around .8 inches long. He pooped twice, one at 9 and one at 1pm. The first one was bigger. He was out of his tank for a long time today playing with me. I have attached an image below of something I found in the tank. I don't know what part of his body or came from or what it is. Please help so I can make sure he is healthy, but he is moving fine and having fun.

That looks like poop to me because of the white bit, and he isnt digesting those small (mealworms?), maybe try small dubias or bsfl. Im not extremely experienced so I'd suggest waiting on some more input. Just remain calm, im sure the little one is fine!

Hello it does look like it is poo to me. I would suggest feeding him things other than mealworms since he seems to be having some trouble digesting them.

Superworms aren't a real good staple. Try some small-medium dubias, no bigger than the space between their eyes. They have a greater protein ratio that a growing beardie would need. It looks like poop to me. Also, test his poop for parasites and what are your tank temperatures?

I have been told by a very experienced reptile breeder that dragons have problems digesting mealworms because of the skelital body of the worms, and further more the super worms are genetically enhanced with chemicals so I don't feed my dragon super worms at all.

Please don’t feed meal and super worms they can cause impaction bc parts of them can’t be digested. Please

Try not using super worms, move to something with a softer shell. Try out pheonix worms, soft shell, high calcium.

I only use baby superworms but I am now switching to BSFL. He doesn't poo superworms anymore though. Also how do I get the basking spot hotter?
