F o o d

Postby DragonMaster9817 » Fri Sep 25, 2020 4:03 am

should I be using fresh misted (as in via a spray/mist bottle) greens? I am using dry food you can find at a pet store, sometimes I usually feed him crickets as a surprise and that's the only type of insect he likes, should I be feeding him only crickets and greens instead of dry food?

If you need help w/ feeding your dragon please ask -- No more dried stuff its not nutritional
Insects need to be dusted once per day 5 x per week w/ calcium D3 Vitamins w/ beta carotene once per feeding 2 x per week --

No dry food. It's garbage and I'm surprised they eat it. If he's 5 I'd feed him fresh greens everyday (I mist mine so he gets his hydration). Twice a week I feed him live insects. Mine likes crickets, super worms, and mealworms. As a treat every so often mine LOVES a hornworm. I also dust his live food with calcium (without D3) one feeding and multi-vitamin the next (he won't eat his salad if I dust that so I don't).

thank you for letting me know, now my bearded dragon can have a healthier diet, but one more thing, his colors have gotten paler over the years, if I start feeding him a healthy supply of greens and crickets, will his color get Bolder and fuller?
