how to get your bearded dragon to eat greens

Not open for further replies.
Hi all, i need some advice on how to get my bearded dragon to eat more greens; she currently barely eats any and she started looking skinny. I feed her worms most of the time but i know i cant just feed her worms all the time.

Can you post a few pics of her to show her size, also her set up ? What type of greens have you used ? Some people put BSFL or other worms on the greens but if your dragon is looking thin she needs more protein as well. Can you get crickets, locusts or dubia ? Those are good staple feeders. My dragons all started eating dragons as babies, sometimes if you just drop a few pieces near them it attracts their attention. Some people put the greens on a white paper plate so they stand out more.

Adding something to the greens to get them attracted is a good idea, whether it's worms or a small amount of fruit or something. I agree with @AHBD, if she is looking thin she probably needs more protein too. I also found offering the greens a couple of hours before the protein helped encourage mine to eat his.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
