Last friday for my birthday my older brother bought me a horned mountain dragon (I lol'd when I heard the name, thought he said horny). So now I've gone out to buy him some insects to eat, the guy at Petsmart's reptile section said that he'll eat superworms, wax worms, mealworms and crickets. I bought him superworms and wax worms, the guy said wax worms are extremely healthy for them and that they like them, but my lizard won't eat them, which pisses me off cuz theyre like 10 bucks to buy. Anyone have a lizard and had them not want to eat something?

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give me.

Maybe Trogdor the burninator isn't hungry. Reptiles eat infrequently.

maybe he just isnt hungry yet? reptiles sometimes dont eat for days. Also is the place where he's at warm enough? because otherwise he wont have the energy to go after the worms and eat them

Fry them and coat them in caramel, he won't say no.

Or, try getting the third option of worm?

Or maybe just leaving the worms that are good for it in there, eventually it will eat them. Natural instinct and all that. But when it gets to the stage where it's clothes are baggy and it's bony, maybe talk to the pet shop guy?

maybe he's just nervous in his new home. Give him some time to adjust and feel more relaxed at home.
Does it like water? Some lizards like to take frequent baths in water and it helps them relax and feel more better.


BTW pics???

WTF? How did you not name him Trogdor the burninator? **** your ****ty lizard.

If you only got him recently then maybe he's just stressed and doesn't feel like eating. Once he settles in he should be fine.

Besides, once he gets hungry he will eat.
#24
Maybe he's like a human baby. If you eat some worms in front of him, he might get jealous and want some worms too!

And why are they called "Superworms"? They sound great, maybe you should get a pet superworm instead.

Earthworm Jim > Superworms.

I just googled some pictures and horned mountain dragons look pretty damn cool.

And Retro Rocker - he could just get a superworm and name it Earthworm Jim. Can't lose.

The crickets wouldn't dare make noise in the cage of a hungry reptile. I used to have 2 Uromastix and I fed them crickets about every two weeks. No noise.
