Can I feed garlic leaves to my beardy?

Postby FastLink » Tue Apr 07, 2020 8:50 am

Odd question but I have a ton of garlic plants (a lot of young leaves sprouting) and I was wondering if they're safe to give to bearded dragons? Definitely not feeding the actual garlic, just the young leaves. Due to COVID-19 I haven't really had a lot of fresh produce my beardy can eat.

I personally wouldn't give them any but I have no idea if it's actually harmful or not. I'm not sure where you're from but around here there are plenty of dandelions, both the leaves and yellow flowers are good to feed. I also give mine the leaves from mulberry and maple trees but they are just starting to emerge here so aren't quite ready yet. Here's a post that lists a few other options that you may have around you that you can also feed if you haven't seen it yet, viewtopic.php?f=18&t=254138

I tend to avoid offering anything related to garlic and onions. I realize that options may be quite limited at the moment though. Are you in an area that is warm enough for a garden to be growing yet? What other options do you have on hand? Maybe some frozen or canned veges?
