    Thumbs up Toothpick feeding

    Gday was trying to feed my dragon veg buy putting it in a dish in his tank but he didn't touch it.
    I then tryed putting a piece of melon on a toothpick and twisting it between my finger and thumb which makes it spin.
    He came straight over and smashed it.

    Worked a treat!

    Hope this helps anyone having trouble.

    Moving food is always a good way to get them eating, but don't use too much fruit as it can be bad for their teeth.Hard veg is always a good choice.

    Not really they both do it. Sometimes to show dominance and sometimes just to help shed

    Wont that create dependence on hand feeding. I think of it as making a rod for your back. If you dont have the time to hand feed or someone else has to do it what happens if it rejects someone else?

    You should get used to that.
    Fear will not solve the problem here.

    I guess they like their food to be moving, it attracts them more. I think most animals are like that, if they see something moving or shaking, they're immediately attracted to it.
