I’m looking for some new staples for my beardies diet as dandelions are out of season and kale isn’t great for them to have every day.

I heard collard greens are good, but any suggestions are welcome !

I would also love to know any “treat” foods you give your beardies, as I know she’d love them 😊

My go to greens include endive/escarole and mustard greens, sometimes sweet potato leaves as they’re found easily in my area. Also feed him grated kabocha squash occasionally. I used to give him cactus as well but it takes quite some time to prepare. Draco’s fav treats are blueberries and apple slices 😄

My Salad, swear by it. It changes up but usually stays the same amounts. From most to least.

  • Collard Greens
  • Dandelion greens
  • mustard greens
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Spaghetti Squash (sub carrot, acorn squash, etc)
  • Fruit 2x a week. Apple, berry, whatever is good, and Cal:K appropriate.
add some repashy or a similar vegetarian additive and make a dressing 2x or so a week.

I haven't had less than 50 dragons and 10 other herbavores, the romaine is used as a filer.

Thank you so so much !! She is currently eating a mix of collard greens, mustard greens, kale, and on occasion some celery leaves. I’ll definitely try and give her a few more fruits since she only gets them once as week as of current.

And I’ve started to use squash ! Do you know if the stringy guts (without the seeds) or the flesh of he fruit is better ? I’ve fed her pumpkin guts as a natural deworming preventative treat and she enjoyed it.

Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
