No worries! I know just what you are talking about. A heads up…since you didn’t get your beardie from a reputable breeder, your little guy/gal can have a parasite load. Icky I know, and something we don’t like to think about when getting a pet from a big box store. But the fact is, that just like Walmart doesn’t produce their own goods, Petco (who I used to work for a thousand years ago) does not raise their own pet offerings. They tend to get them wherever they can, as cheap as they can. Therefore, I highly recommend that you take a fecal sample into your local vet. Not the animal, just a fecal sample. And hey, you can turn it into a science project or biology lesson! If you do need to worm, then you will know. Also, be sure to check out my guide to Bearded Dragon care on this website. You might pick up a tip or two that will be interesting.
