Is yellow squash ... ok for beardies? I know there are alot of squash out there that is, just curious. I am trying to mix up her greens/veggies, so she will eat more of them.
Do you mean summer squash, if so, that is a good one to feed. This site shows some pics of different types of squash if you click on the name of the squash. Hopefully that will help. http://www.beautifuldragons.503xtreme.c ... ition.html

It's OK if fed in only small amount. While it's not harmful, it doesn't have much nutrition but still more than lettuces I believe. Same as tomatoes and radishes. Winter squash, such as butternut squash, acorn squash, and kobocha are much better and have a lot of nutrients and are great color enhancers.
Here is another link: http://www.greenigsociety.org/foodchart.htm IT shows what greens and veggies and fruits to use as the staple and which to use on occasion. The occasions one I buy every other week and mixed it in with the staple greens all week, so it comes out to 2 parts good greens and 1 part occasional greens. I do this with my iguana for 3 years with no health issue. You should mix them in to add varieties. If you do not even if you feed them the good greens, they still can suffer from nutritional deficiency. It's OK as long as you mix it with the good staple greens and veggies.
Thanks for all the info. I had gotten a deal on some yellow squash the other day, and today I purchased a butternut squash, and I still have some acorn squash from before. She doesn't seem to like the squash too much. I have been giving her a mixture of turnip and mustard greens and she would take a piece here and there. Got her some kale today and I have seen her eat more of that. But she now has the Repti-Sun 10.0 UVB tube light and she seems happier. I have tried shredding the squash and mincing it, which is better?
