Further studies were done on kale and it was found that it is a better feeder than collards
I do a mix of kale and collard greens like a little of both. I also add squash like 2 days a week, apples or strawberries once a week or not at all. I read about it and it says that it’s okay but I am not sure now.

Kale is not a good staple, like spinach it is a calcuim binder. Collard,mustard,or turnip green are better base staple. Fruits should be treats.

Sorry for the questions I am just confused because I thought this was okay.

This really is normal. My guy is a little over a year old and gets salads everyday, bugs Monday/Wednesday/Friday and soaked pellets as a treat once a week. Monday this week he ate about 5-6 roaches, Wednesday he ate about 20-25, and today he ate about 4-5. Kale is lower than collard greens in oxalates that bind with the calcium, so it's a great staple green don't worry about that. There was some information years back that they were high in oxalates but that isnt actually the case. Variety is good, so mixing in some collards or mustard greens or even romaine or escarole lettuce, just no iceberg as it's mostly water and not much else in the way of nutrition.

thank you so much! I am actually a huge fan of your tiktok and you inspired me to start using topsoil/plays and as a substrate! I was a little worried about the kale thing but you and some others have said it was okay +sent articles so my worries are gone now!

HES SO CUTE! He is 2 inches bigger than willow, I know willow was born in august but I am not sure what day so I just go by august 7th, since it’s my birthday too. The last two pictures where he looks tiny are when I first got him (I don’t use reptile carpet anymore) and the first two are from like two months ago I just don’t take many pics

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
