Garden greens

Postby Reptilelady » Sun Jun 13, 2021 12:25 pm

Hello everyone,
So I took my bearded dragon outside to bask in the sun and he basically ate some of my shishito pepper leaves that I happen to be growing he did not eat the peppers itself but just green leafy part. Are they OK?

I swear this guy will eat anything that is in his path and just want to make sure.

How much did he eat? Peppers and tomatoes are in the nightshade family and the leaves are toxic.
You might want to call a reptile vet or the aspca poison control (888) 426-4435

He only ate a very small amount. He seems to be acting normal...no signs of distress. Going to make sure he wont be able to eat anymore of those plants. Thank you.

Thats good to hear. Check all plants in your yard that he may come in contact with.
I keep my dragon leashed so he can't run away or go after unapproved plants
