Hello.
I plan to feed my 5 month bearded dragon black soldier fly larvae for its protein. I was wondering if I can give it the flies if they happen to hatch?

My thoughts are why not? But I know they grow wings and get a tougher body. I don't want to do anything that could cause them harm.

PS. I have been wanting a beardie for YEARS and have spent countless hours doing online research, it's how I came across this page and decided to join. I rather get my info in one place, from other owners.

It's been so overwhelming navigating through countless articles, trying to find common answers, and knowing what's right. I'm hoping this place helps lol.
Thanks!

Welcome to the forum -- you have come to a good place to get help -- answer to your first question you can feed the BSFL when they become flies you just dont want to feed them if they are too big- I did have them turn into flies once or twice when my dragons were older so they were able to eat them - 5 month old you just need to watch the size of the bug - nothing bigger than the space between his eyes --
So anymore questions or concerns your having please ask -- there is all kinds of info on the site please look over the articles on the right side of the page and if you have questions please ask --

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
