Similarly, what do I do if my bearded dragon hasn't pooped?
Try bathing your bearded dragon for around 10-20 minutes, and see if the poop comes out. If bathing your bearded dragon doesn't help and the poop seems to be hard, then give your bearded dragon a drop of vegetable or mineral oil for lubrication. Repeat the bath at the end of the day.
One may also ask, do bearded dragons poop everyday? Adult bearded dragons can poop anywhere from once to seven times a week!
