It’s all too easy to fall into the trap of just offering your bearded dragon the same old food day after day – but it doesn’t have to be that way! Bearded dragons benefit enormously from a varied diet; not only does it provide a whole range of necessary micronutrients within the diet, but it also provides them with mental exercise hunting down different types of prey. Although your adult bearded dragon should be having a mainly vegetarian diet, there’s no reason why their livefoods shouldn’t exercise their minds as well as their bodies.
The foods included on the list are all good for your dragon in moderation, and remember that an adult bearded dragon should have an 80% vegetarian diet. If you find that your dragon is becoming a little too fond of any particular item and is going off foods they used to enjoy, then stop offering the one they are getting fixated on and pick a different one from the list. You will soon discover your dragon’s favourites, and by expanding their diet you will be helping them to live a long, healthy and happy life!
