Good Source of Information Re Feeding Your Bearded Dragon
Your Bearded Dragon is an omnivore, meaning that he needs a balanced diet of meat and vegetable matter. A hatchling dragon will eat mostly small insects. As your dragon grows, he will start to eat more vegetable matter. The diet of a juvenile dragon (2-4 months of age) will consist of approximately 80% insects and 20% greens. Young dragons should be fed 2-3 times daily. If insufficient food is fed, young dragons may nip at the tails and toes of their cage mate
|Plant Food Sources
Plant matter should make up approximately 20% of your dragon's diet and should consist mainly of green leafy vegetables. You may also include other vegetables. Fruit should make up the smallest portion of the diet. Shred or tear vegetables and fruits into small pieces and mix them together to encourage your dragon to eat all that is offered, and not just pick out his favorite foods. Following is a list of some popular plant-based dragon foods.
Being September, the blackberries are very ripe and delicious and my beardie LOVES them. She eats one or two every few days. This is a delight that she can enjoy for about a month and then they are out of season. Be careful with seeds with small immature beardies as they can create a blockage. Also don't let food mix with the cage substrate i.e. sand etc because the small particles caught on the food may also cause a digestion problem. Use a saucer or small container lid.
