    Did you research the care and feeding of bearded dragons before you purchased it and did you buy from a reputable breeder? Here's a site to get you started: Bearded Dragons as Pets - Introduction

    If you bought him from the breeder I would call and ask. If he's from a pet store they very well may know little about the animals they sell.

    You can always try to find a Vet who treats "exotics."

    Thank you, but I purchased him from a pet store and they do breed with them they gave me a lot of info but said that he should be fine but I still am concerned about this as I can't see how its normal, I have read up a lot on them but still can't find a way to get him to eat normally as all the sites say he should eat at least for a day

    And the pet store doesn't know (and did you check their reputation?). I am not aware of a pet store that also breeds. "Most" pet stores buy and sell the babies but do not breed themselves.

    In my area the "average" pet store treats small "exotics" as disposables - it dies, they replace it within X days. Sad but true.

    At any rate if the info is not available I would call a Vet who specializes in "exotics."

    Call your public library's reference desk and ask. They will look it up and let you know
