Won’t eat veggies

Postby Joslin » Fri May 17, 2019 8:49 am


I’ve had my bearded dragon since Dec 2017, so he is an adult now, at first she was eating as he was suppose to, I was mixing veggies and worms everyday and she had no problem eating them, around the end of the year last year Zoey (my beardie is a boy w a girls name, yes we originally thought he was a she) got mites. So during that time she was being quarantined in a different area away from my other animals, while she was being quarantined she refused to eat anything. Ever since she will not touch any kind of veggies. She eats her worms/roaches everyday but no matter what tactic I try I can not get her to eat the veg. I’ve tried mixing the bugs w the salad but then she will either refuse to eat or just eat the bugs, I’ve tried only giving her salad for a couple days and she just refused to eat, I’ve tried giving her a bunch of colorful options but she is just not interested. PLEASE GIVE ME SOME NEW TIPS AND TRICKS TO GET HER TO EAT.

I am running out of things to try and I know that only bugs isn’t a healthy diet for my baby

Hi there. Sorry about your picky eater. Mine was the same way for a bit and I tried tons of stuff. I ended up buying bee pollen from Tracie and it's worked remarkably for my little girl. It has a sweet nutty flavor to it and the dragons usually love it. Hope this helps!

You can try cilantro the smell attracts them also fresh dandelions that are not sprayed-- the yellow flowers and the leaves
