Wild edible plants?

Postby NightRaysMoon » Wed Sep 30, 2020 2:07 pm

Wild plants are my favourite things to collect for fun. Bird vetch/Vicia cracca, Purple Milkvetch, Toadflax, Black Locust, and Siberian Pea trees/Peashrubs all contain something edible or with medical digestive properties. Edit; and Rowan berries.
I am curious to know if any of these are safe for bearded dragon consumption? If so which should be fed in moderation?
Notes-
These all have separate yielding times and two are from another province. I will not use them as staple foods, just as treats.

I'm not familiar with any of those, unfortunately. When I try to figure out what can be fed, I usually look up if the item is toxic to reptiles or to birds (since their systems are similar). If I can't find anything conclusive, I don't offer it out of caution. Same if something is labeled generally toxic to pets. I do know that a lot of garden and yard plants can be good for them. Dandelions (and their greens), mint, clover, etc are all good items to offer if they like them. My dragon will pick at them sometimes when he's roaming the yard.
