How is my feeding for my beardie

Postby KoNut » Thu Mar 28, 2019 8:54 am

Hello, i have a 7 month old male bearded dragon. He is a little over 16 inches long. In the morning 2 hours after lights on i feed him about 10 wax worms and 5 super worms, second feeding he eats collard greens and 20-30 large bsfl. And that is what he gets everyday. I'm just wondering if what I'm feeding him is good and if any changes need to be done. The reason why I'm only feeding him worms is because he stopped eating crickets a while ago and doesn't really like dubia roaches. Any thoughts?

You can try BFl-- blow fly larvea--- nutri grubs I think they are also called -- the meal worms are pretty hard on their digestive system and meant for older adult dragons--- super worms are more for treats and not a every day feeder--- the BFL are small so you want to get the large ones if ordered-- you will need to wash them as they come in like a dirt -- you can google them to see where you can order them from - I have ordered them from dubiaroaches.com but they charge shipping so you can shop around other places -- some others on here might have some more ideas for you

Oh dear yes I guess that didnt answer your question sorry about that but yes that is a good diet-- you can always offer him mustard greens green beans squash and fruit apples strawberries blueberries sweet potato -- I am surprised he quit eating those bugs but as long as hes eating the BSFL that is good they are full of calcium--
