My beardie is maybe about 8 to 9 inches long how much am I supposed to feed her? How often do feed her bc I am a college student?
She needs fresh green salads everyday like collards kale turnip or mustard squash like zucchini yellow butternut sweet potato shredded- etc I can post a nutrition website tomorrow- a staple insect everyday live crickets silk worms or bsfl or dubias I recommend those they need to be dusted w/ calcium D 3 5x per week one per feeding/ day vitamins w/ beta carotene 2x per week once per feeding / day - a good uvb is crucial no coil uvb's they are a health hazard and a good solid bright white basking bulb w/ surface basking temps 95-100-- examples are a Exo Terra intense basking bulb-- or zoo meds repti basking bulb - 2 digital probe thermometers to get actual surface basking temps--

How many insects should she eat like is there a 10 minute window she eats as many as she can?

Yes but you want her eating salads this is how they get most of her hydration - rinse the greens before serving- she needs good lighting and proper basking temps -- this is crucial to her over all health - the uvb needs correct placement and distance- not all uvb's are the same

kale is a great staple feeder

KarrieRee gave such useful information. When I bought my beardie, I didn't know about this forum, and it was a little hard to find such tips on the web. Why are you asking it and add what you are a student? Do you have some challenges because of this fact? Fortunately, I found this source where I often get help with some of my papers for college. I'm also a student, and sometimes I didn't even have time to learn such things because of many educational tasks.

Rinsing greens is not just for hydration imo, i commonly find dirt and bird poop on the greens. You dont want to feed that to your beardies either

I agree with xp29, you always need to rinse green before you will get it to your beardie

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 ?
