Help! Belgian Endive?

Hello. I’m trying out new greens for my beardie. He usually eats turnip greens and collards with the occasional mustard greens. Today, however, I bought dandelion greens and Belgian endive. I’ve never fed either but I heard dandelion greens are a good staple. It’s the Belgian endive I am unsure about now that I’ve been researching. The endive I bought are the hearts of the plant (like the picture below) not the tops. I took a couple leaves and chopped them up along with collard and dandelion greens. Is that ok to feed my beardie? Or do I need the endive tops? Or the other kind of endive (English, I think)? Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm feeding mine endive this week. It's on the approved list and is actually supposed to be one of the better vegetables for them.

Thanks, guys. I did get the idea for endive from the beautiful dragons site but then I googled how to prepare the endive and I ran into posts on another forum that said it shouldn’t be the Belgian endive like the one I got but rather the green tops of the curly endive. The beautiful dragons site doesn’t differentiate so I figured either type of endive would be ok but now I’m not sure. I just want to know others feed the Belgian type without problems.


I’ve been feeding my beardie for over 6 months with the yellow Endive you posted. He’s doing fine and is almost a year old. When she started 6 months ago, she only ate small amounts. Now she loves it and it’s her favorite.

So to any reading this, how on earth do I post a thread 😅 New here, possibly too old for this

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
