Is aloe vera ok for my dragon to eat?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

I have some aloe plants, is it ok if I break off a piece now and then to give to my bearded dragon? I was thinking once a week. They have good antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties. Sort of like giving garlic to fish to help prevent disease and stress.
Thanks for any input

I think it is edible, but do you think they would eat it? I've heard people in Thailand (where I'm from) do in fact in them. But the taste is probably horrific... :x :wink: YOu can probably offer a sliver of it and see what happen.

Id be very careful about gving your beardie anything that isnt already tested as being "safe" You dont want to take a chance on your beardies life! :cry:

Everyone here supports this food list which is pretty diverse. http://www.beautifuldragons.com/Nutritionframeset.html

Have fun with trying different things but be very careful, whats good for some may not be good for others! Good luck!

well raw collard greens and mustard greens don't taste very good either so.... I just wanted to know if it was safe I might try adding some in with my little guys salad. He just started eating his salad yesterday. He ate the whole thing yesterday and today he ate about half of it. I put his salad in in the morning with some free crickets in his cage, and in the evenings I feed phoenix worms.
