Getting Your Beardies to Eat Veggies

So I used this method on accident, but it works so easily its amazing, so I have a baby: Rex who wouldn't touch a veggie unless I attached it to a cricket, I have a way to get your beardies to eat veggies.

Step 1: Take any small lid that fits in your beardies tank, I used an old waxworm lid, suggest a circle lid.

Step 2: begin feeding your beardie with said lid, though if your beardie eats comfortably from its food bowl then just use that. so heres the thing, hopefully your okay with 'disabling' the insects so they stay in the lid/bowl, this may make you squeamish, but I use these tongs to give the insect a quick and painless death by crushing the head... I know :( I feel really bad but they were going to die anyway.

Step 3: feed your beardie like this for at least 4 days to let them know that whatever you put in the bowl is food.

Step 4: begin introducing veggies in the lid, this worked instantly for Rex and he immediately began eating like that.

Of course every dragon is different so don't be sad if this method doesn't work, just keep trying and eventually they will eat those veggies.
