 Bread

So I’m new to this whole thing, and I didn’t have time to go get crickets for my leo for the past four or five days. I got really anxious, and in a stupid moment fed him bread. (He actually chose to eat it... Probably cuz he was starving)

Yes, I know dumb move.

Afterwards, I went on the internet because I was slightly worried, and behold, a website that said to NOT feed bread to your lizard cuz it causes colin problems.

I’m really worried about this... Can someone tell me if this is true and if it is, tell me what to do? I don’t want my leo to be sick....

;-;

Leos and other lizards will be ok without food for 4-5 days if their healthy and weight ok but why would you feed bread out of all things :/ you should’ve tried fruit or veggies and he will have some gastrointestinal tract problems because their not designed to eat bread. My 7’ water monitor went a week without food because I was broke(couldn’t work because of injury) and he don’t eat bugs like the others so we both raided my fridge and he pulled out raw ground meat and I cooked it and cleaned my fridge with cleaner after lol. But keep the temps/basking spot up, check for poop and weird behavior. You paniced right?? Its ok who don’t :)
