butternut squash everyday?

Postby epauletteshark » Sun Feb 28, 2021 12:43 pm

My bearded dragon, Beatrice, ignores her salads unless they contain butternut squash. Will I be okay giving some to her everyday if I make sure to put in a variety of other veggies(collards, kale, turnip greens, endive, escarole, mustard greens, dandelion, other squashes, etc)?

My guy is obsessed with squash too. Loves butternut squash as well as green and yellow summer squash. I've offered some daily along with other things as you're describing and it has been OK. If Beatrice loves squash, let her have squash :)

Alright, thanks!
It seems like every bearded dragon I've heard of likes squash, wonder why

My guess is that it's hydrating and has a bit of a sweet flavor which they enjoy.
