leopard and bearded dragon diet?
hi im either going to get a leopard gecko or a bearded dragon. my mum hates crickets and wont let me keep them. so could i leeve crickets out of a leos or beardys diet, an just feed them everthing else?
like can i just feed them meal worms, an the other worms with the suppliments instead of crickets?
Absoutly not. A primary diet for a Bearded Dragon and Leopard Gecko is CRICKETS along with mealworms only when a bearded dragon gets bigger and leopard geckos can have small ones BUT THEY NEED crickets. ive read about breeders who have been doing it like a long long time that have experienced with no crickets on a bearded dragon and it works BUT i dont know how you would get the beardie big and healthy from a juvenile without his crickets. yeah they eat veggies and fruits BUT their diet as a juvenile is this 80% bugs (crickets and silkworms if you can get your hands on smalll silkworms they can be fed everyday they are a excellent thing) and 20% veggies and fruits Leopard geckos DONT eat veggies or fruits therefore they absoutly have to have crickets and worms. thats there diet..OH someone might say something along the lines of liike there is dried dead crickets and worms you can feed BUT your leopard gecko has a very slim chance of wanting to eat those. so maybe you need to reallly consider that you can not possibly care for those reptiles without crickets.
Can pellets substitute for mealworms and crickets in a bearded dragon’s diet?
I’m getting a beardie soon, and I really don’t want to feed it bugs. Can pellets and pre-made mixes substitute for them?
Please give a website.
No, you should feed him crickets and veggies i personally dont feed my BD mealworms.
Buy crickets they come in a bag, and buy a cricket catcher pour them in the cricket catcher and the crickets go up the tubes when feeding tap the tube on the side of his tank and some will fall out but watch out you dont want to many in there with a baby beardie they can hide and come out at night a chew on him. Make sure he eats all the crickets you give or take them out and make his tank as simple as possible with no where for the crickets to hide.
need help on bearded dragon diet?
so i am getting a bearded dragon next week and i think i have the right idea on a diet, give it fresh salad everyday, put some meal worms with the salad everyday and every other day give it some crickets.
Your diet is good except for one thing. The meal worms need to be swapped with the crickets. Fresh Vegetables daily like kale, bokchoy, squash, carrots, mustard and collard greens are good. Make sure not to give lettuce, especially iceberg lettuce.
Meal worms should be fed every 3rd or 4th day. Only occasionally as they are high in fat and have a hard exo-skeleton which can cause impaction (intestinal blockage) if fed in large amounts. Crickets should be fed daily and offered twice a day for 15 minutes each. If your Bearded Dragon eats as fast as mine do, then you might want to decrease the cricket feeding times to around 5 minutes so you don’t overfeed them.
Their diets should consist of 80% crickets, 20% vegetables while hatchlings. 60% crickets and 40% vegetables while juveniles. 20% crickets and 80% vegetables while adults. Always adding about 5 – 10% fruits like strawberries, bananas and apples once juveniles to adults and always dusting their food in multivitamins and calcium with d3 supplements.
what is a bearded dragon diet?
i am getting a bearded dragon what should i feed a one year old in a normal day how much and at what time??
prepare a decent sized salad and leave it in there for the whole day, because at this age they eat mostly veggies. Don’t feed them lettuce, any kind of lettuce. As for live food, you can just put some mealworms in his veggie bowl at let’s say 10:30 in the morning. Then at about 3 to 4:30 check to see if the worms are gone, and if they are, you can refill if you want. They only need to be fed live food once to three times a week when they’re that old. Instead of mealworms you could also feed him crickets or silkworms.
