Won't Ever Eat Greens!

Postby TheTechimals » Wed Jan 11, 2017 5:33 am


My beardy is brumating right now, so this if for a future reference.
My bearded dragon is getting around 2 years old now, however she rarely touches her greens. Besides putting bugs in her salads, is there any other way I can get her to eat greens? My friend's bearded dragon who is about the same age never touches bugs, and only eats greens, so it's pretty much the opposite problem for them. I would also like to know the possible causes for this to happen, is it because she prefers bugs, or something else? The lack of fiber and vitamins causes her to have some digestion problems, so any help would be great! And the weird thing about this is that she ate more veggies when she was younger... It just doesn't make much sense!!! :banghead:

There are lots of tricks to try to get them to eat veggies. Make it more colorful (with squash, carrots, etc). Putting worms in there. Hand feeding. If none of these work, provide a daily salad and don't give her bugs until she eats it- they will usually get hungry enough to take the salad.
