Bearded dragon preferences

I don’t know if this is under the correct topic but I was wondering what insect your bearded dragon prefers? will your dragon eat all different insects? I have supers and Dubia roaches. I started a colony of roaches awhile ago and I wanted to let them get established since I was feeding him too many and the colony wasn’t able to grow, I bought some super worms. I had been feeding him the super worms and I started to mix in some roaches since the colony has grown quite a lot. He will hardly eat the roaches anymore!!!! He will eat the supers like crazy but I can only get him to eat a few roaches. Is there any way to get him more interested in the roaches? Of course he won’t eat them now that I have lots of them😂🤦‍♀️

Hes addicted -- quit feeding the supers all together and he will start to eat the roaches again

Ok thank you, at first I got worried when he wasn’t eating. I thought he could be sick but when I tried the supers he went crazy for them. It’s so weird that he won’t eat the roaches, has this happened to anyone else??

You could try crickets as a variety or bfsl-- they are a small grub that are calcium fortified-- Google black fly soldier larvea

FWIW, there's a poll on this question from 2008. :)
