    Sometimes, new pets will go off their food for a day or two due to the new environment, new handling, new sights, new sounds, etc.

    If your baby dragon has not eaten for 24 hours, a trip to the vet is definitely in order.  If you bought a baby, there is a possibility that there is some sort of illness at play here.

    Good luck and let us know what happens.

    How old is your baby dragon? Many pet stores and private breeders do not sell dragons younger than 6 months of age, as usually only a few survive to that age from a clutch of babies. Baby dragons have a hard time eating worms and crickets, and are usually given a special food, so make sure that is what you have as well. Contact your vet or the person you bought your beardie from to find our more about this.
