Yes! He loves his salad!
Menu today: kale, dandelion, zucchini, bell pepper, shredded sweet potato.
YUM (of course he has to eyeball it first to be sure it's up to snuff!)

What's your buddy having today?

Always! Good salad every day and 3 supers every other day. Good diet imo. 😃

This is basically the exact diet I had one of my oldest living girls on, FWIW. Although every once in awhile I swapped the supers for a couple adult male dubias from my colony.

Anyways, looks like a tasty salad and a hungry happy dragon :)

Got his carpet, worm dish, 2 probe thermometers, vitamins and calcium supplements, IR temp gun and 100 Supers.
Think I'll go after tile tomorrow and maybe wake him up for a bit. 😃

Glad it was only a 3 day nap this time.
Back in his groove, chowing down on his salad.
He got a mix of turnip and mustard greens with kale, zucchini, sweet potato shreds and a sliced red globe grape. Mustard greens is new, haven't tried that since I've had him. Also a couple new items to be tried later, fresh green beans and a Brussels sprout. Knowing they eat cabbage type greens, thought I'd try the sprout,

😆 I only bought ONE (1) sprout. Along with 6 green beans and 6 globe grapes. Had to explain to cashier since she kept looking at me funny. 😆
Was looking for a little variety to add to his greens, not as a staple. Like grapes. He only gets 1/2-1 grape, sliced, couple times a week. Same with blueberry. Depends on size.
I am SO thankful that he loves his greens!

Of course! And if you only feed 1 you can't buy too much of anything for fear of spoilage. If I wouldn't eat old limp veggies I'm certainly not gonna give it to him. I'm just anal that way. 😆
I even asked at another store if it was ok just to get a handful of grapes out of the normal 2-3 pound bags. Produce girl told me a lot of peeps do that for feeding lizards, etc. All good. 😃

I'm such a lizard nerd; I keep a picture of Figment on my phone and show the people when they look at me oddly for buying only a few leaves of collards out of the bunch! "See my baby? He gets SALADS!" :lol:

Dang! Greens aren't sold by the pound here or rarely! They charge by the 'bunch'. $1.99 whether you get the whole bunch or just a few leaves. :(

I found the greens last a month, if unwashed, as dry as possible and stored in the 'Debbie Myer green bags'. I bought those years ago, cheap, on clearance and reusable. Works well for fruit too, like strawberries.
Funny, collards grow best in cold weather, you'd think they would cost more in summer. They are real cheap here, we grow a lot of greens in NC. That was price in store yesterday. 1.99 every store is different price. A month ago they were .79! Go figure.
Oh! I am in no way related to the green bag people! 😆 I would have never paid the full price for them! 😆
