Staple salad ideas?! 1 year old dragon?

Postby Travistwiggy » Wed Aug 08, 2018 10:54 am

Hello, I have a very picky almost 1 year old dragon. He mainly eats his crickets and superworm as his protein staple. So far I try mixing kale, collard greens , parsley, squash and eggplant. Would love some ideas of some of the salads your dragon's like to eat?

My dragon seems to like kale the most but I have read a Lot of mixed reviews on feeding it to them? Also he only seems to eat his salad when nobody is watching him. I have walked in on him chomping down, he admeditly stops Drops what's in his mouth and walks backwards away .... ???

Mines picky too, here’s a great nutrition list.

I try everything that is good & healthy for him. Mine loves his kale too.
They like squash, which you can grate.
If yours don’t like it, you can eat it.

I was surprised this morning when he started eating his kale & greens, but I was wiggling them, lol. I just wish he would eat everything, without me feeding him.

Lol yes I find it frustrating I can't get him to eat much for greens at all... he reminds me of a spoiled kid when I try to put greens to his face he closes his eyes and turns his head.. he actually runs away when I put salad in with him... I know there still time before the switch to 80% veg, just does not look promising at this point.

I do feed him squash. I cook mine first then mash it up and put dabs of it on his salad he seems to eat some of it.

I usually give Cody collard or mustard greens, carrots, snap peas, bell peppers, dried mealworms, rose petals, and a dusting of bee pollen. The dried meal worms are what attract her over to the salad. :D
