Tonight when i got home from work i went to mist down my beardie and I noticed a clump of meal worms and next to it a clump of greens. Both have been eaten and looked to have been regurgitated. Right now the Beardie is baskin in his lamp and active just like normal. He is a real pig when it comes to food, is it possible he just put too much food down? he had like 18 mealworm in his tray and they were gone in a day and a half allong with allot of salad. The salad consisted of Romaine,carrot shreds, and frisse. All of which has eaten plenty of times without a problem. Not sure of the temps but his basking spot is HOT. he's in a 10 gallon tank with a 75W spot bulb. He is about 5" total length.

Could have been the pigging out.
I have read that they do that from time to time.
just keep checking to see if it becomes a habit.

Too many mealies will definately cause regurgitation. At 5" he should NOT be eating any mealworms. They are too difficult to digest, and they can cause impaction or hind leg paralysis. Get him on quarter inch crickets, and you shouldn't have any problems with regurgitation.

Re: Beardie Regurge

Heyy, Ed r I've had my beardies since I was five years old. It's most likely to be what everyone else is saying and I do agree with Brian B. Depending on the size of the meal worms if ur beardie doesn't digest the mealworm correctly the mealworm will actually will eat its way out of your little mate. I've never touched mealworms because of this reason and I've fed all my beardies crickerts and they have NEVER regurgitated their food. Switch to crickets =D

No offense Sharky, but you might want to check the date on that post. Ed_r hasn't been seen around here in ages, and this post is from 10 years ago.

hahahahaha I knew that its just that some of my friends come onto this site as a visitor and asked me to post on this forum for them so that they could see what to do when it happens to their beardies coz they couldn't find anything on the net! and it saves me having to tell it to ten different people
