ok.
i have a young frilled dragon. i received it several weeks ago from Ben Seigel. it is a good looking healthy animal.
Ben told me it was feeding on crickets.
after reading all the info i could on them i began to hand or tong feed after a few days. the dragon feeds very well. it will take crickets from my fingers or tongs easily. I give it treats of wax worms a couple times a week. will start on different feeder insects soon.
the issue i am having is, it will under no condition take a calcium dusted cricket. it took them for the first week and a half but since has refused anything with the dust on it.
i am feeding the crickets as varied a diet as possible. but want to make sure i am feeding a high calcium diet. what are the best foods for stuffing the feeders with calcium?
and also, has anyone else had this issue? every other lizard i have ever kept chased the dusted before the clean feeders.
