QnA on Why won't my bearded dragon eat?

There could be a number of reasons why your bearded dragon is not eating. One possibility is that he or she may be ill and experiencing nausea or other digestive issues. Alternatively, the dragon may be refusing to eat because of stress or anxiety caused by a change in environment or routine. It is also possible that the lizard is simply not hungry. Bearded dragons typically eat insects, and if they are not given the opportunity to hunt for their food, they may be less inclined to eat.
