Bearded dragons have an incredibly fast growth rate in their first few months of life, so it is recommended that their diet should be 80% livefoods and 20% greens. Good habits formed now will last for the life of your pet, so it’s very important to offer as many different foods as possible so that your grown up dragon doesn’t become a fussy eater.
Offering lots of different food items gives your juvenile beardie the opportunity to explore different tastes, textures and hunting techniques. The livefoods on this list have all been selected to be ideal for a young dragon of 6 – 9 months old, so do try to make sure that your dragon has the chance to try several different types. When you add lots of different types of salad to the diet, your baby dragon will be set up for a long, healthy and happy life!
