“Couldn’t poor Ensley go on a play date somewhere or visit family? Poor thing can’t participate?” one follower asked on TikTok.
The MTV star, 29, replied, “We are going to buy her a ‘dragon’ now… bearded dragon,” with a laughing face emoji.
Concerned fans flocked to Reddit to express their concerns for the bearded dragon.

One pointed out David’s history with animals, recalling: “After David killed one of the goats she gave the rest to her friend Amber at the same time she gave her the ‘lost’ dog and her puppies?”
Another wrote: “Just promise Ensley some other type of one on one time later! Why drag another animal in to the chaos to die?”
A third critic talked about the long list of requirements needed to care for bearded dragons and claimed they are not appropriate pets for a young child.
“Beardies aren’t cheap to properly care for. They require a lot- fresh veggies, live insects, heat source, uvb, basking areas, etc etc etc,” they wrote.

“They aren’t pets for four-year-olds or people who can’t even be bothered to keep their doodle properly groomed. I hate these people.”
Back in November, Jenelle was slammed for letting Ensley hold a small lizard by its tail and swing it through the air.
“That is a big lizard, Ensley, where did you find him?” she asked in a video posted on her Instagram Stories.
Ensley replied, “I saw him over there,” and pointed behind her, as she swung the gecko from side to side.

Jenelle was fired from Teen Mom 2 in 2019 after David shot and killed Jenelle’s bulldog, Nugget, after the pup apparently nipped at Ensley, last year.
Following the shocking incident, their kids were temporarily taken into custody by the CPS.
In September, David sparked outrage after killing the family’s pet goat Elvis and posting a disturbing video showing him eating it.
The goat, which Jenelle’s kids had “loved,” was born on their farm last year and raised by the family.

David bit into the grilled meat and said, “This is Elvis, the little baby we had last year,” before sharing a gruesome photo of Elvis’ severed head in the trash.
Jenelle recently defended her husband after fans claimed he “ruined her career”.
“I’m still thriving and he only wanted the BEST FOR ME at the time I was MOST MISERABLE,” she insisted on TikTok.
David was arrested for allegedly assaulting Jenelle’s friend last year
