 What to feed my breaded dragon

Hi,
I feed my dragons on kale, rocket, sweet pepper, and celery, but here’s a link to a great site that explains all of the important nutrients & toxins, so that you know what you should and shouldn’t include in your dragon’s diet, as well as listing the nutritional content of many foods.

Link

Hope this helped! If you want any more advice, feel free to add me as a friend of Facebook - Annalise Watson - or like my page - Piasaw Dragons - and message me there.

Do not feed him avocados or fire flies they are poisonous. They eat crickets, red worms, bananas, and carrots.

They also like leafy greens.

Bananas are extremely high in phosphorous... use only rarely. Or not at all...unless you balance it out with something better.
Carrots are also almost 2x as much Phos as calcium...better substitute is butternut squash

Look at the link that was posted from Annalise 2 threads up

Beautiful Dragons

Too much Phos will create a calcium imbalance leading to MBD (Metabolic Bone Disease)

A good balance of Ca 2 to Phos 1 .... 2:1 is the proper amount
many berries offer a better choice than bananas. 1:3.3...ughhh
Ok so beardies love bananas.. but feed less than more...even apples peeled/ diced are a better choice...1:1.8
