For the simple reason that - like all animals - they only eat when they feel hungry. Bear in mind that most reptiles are slow-moving, and don't require large amounts of foods like mammals. If you know your beardie isn't eating every day - just offer food every other day instead. This saves you time and effort in preparing food - and cuts down on waste !

How do you fix my bearded dragons broken back?

As soon as you notice something is wrong with your bearded dragon, you immediately call the vet! Do not wait until the next day! When your bearded dragon acts sluggish, does not move or react to noise or touch, it is in dire need of medical care. Get it to your vet right away or it will be too late for the vet to help your bearded dragon! Even a broken back might be healed if you get your bearded dragon to the vet soon enough after the break happens! Even waiting until the next day may mean the vet cannot help your bearded dragon.

Is it okay to feed a bearded dragon crickets that have eaten food om the same day?

Yes, you can feed crickets that have eaten food on the same day that you feed them to the bearded dragon. It helps the dragon to get more food. It's called gut loading, because you are loading the crickets' guts with extra food that the dragon can use. There is a substance that you can sprinkle onto the crickets before you feed them to the dragon. You can check with your pet store for that.
