My Bearded Dragon Refuses to Eat Greens.

Postby jackothebeardie » Sat May 18, 2019 6:41 am


We recently switched our dragon to a mostly greens diet, but when we switched he suddenly quit eating greens. We have tried many different kinds of leafy greens but he won't eat them. We even tried other things like carrots and bell peppers, yet he still will not eat them. We give him crickets 3-4 times a week and he eats them without a problem. However, he refuses to eat greens, even when I hand feed him. If you have any suggestions for different food sources I can provide for him or ways I can get him to eat his daily supplements please let me know.

How old is your dragon? Sometimes they get stubborn but they will come around eventually as long as your husbandry is proper and there is no underlying health issues.

Have you tried cilantro (also known as coriander) by chance? It seems to work well for picky eaters, maybe because of the strong smell. Since it's leafy and green it's easy to mix or hide in a salad too.
