Keeping a Bearded Dragon : Bearded Dragon Diet Supplements


Now this is a supplement I like to use, it’s
called Dragon dust, it’s made by T-Rex. Now you can buy several different types of supplements
from your local pet store. Most of them are not species specific and since lots of different
reptiles, the different varieties and all the different types of reptiles require different
amounts of vitamins, different types of vitamins and different quantities, I thinks it’s really
really convenient that this T-Rex has come out with species specific vitamin supplements.
So this one is for Bearded Dragons. What this does is it completes the nutritional value
of the vegetables. This is made to be used on a daily basis. This is not a supplement
that’s going to be overpowering if you use it to much. In fact, the jar says the more
the better. It does have vitamins and minerals in it but not in such quantities that it’s
going to be harmful if you give them a lot. Some people like to try manufactured food,
such as this. I just picked this up the other day, my dragon has not tried it yet, but I
do have quite a few customers that come into the pet store and purchase this type of Bearded
Dragon food. Now it is recommended that if you use this type, you may want to moisten
it with Fruit Juice or with water to entice the dragon to eat it. Some dragons will simple
refuse and if you plan on switching a diet over to something like this, definitely start
in small quantities. Just sprinkle a little bit on top of the vegetables. I’m going to
go ahead and try that here. I don’t plan on switching the diet over, I like the diet I
have him on but I might as well try and use these up and see if he likes them a little
bit. So I’ll just throw some on top there and these are his vegetables. Place this here
in the cool side of the tank so the vegetables don’t wilt underneath the basking light.

    …no way 8inch. beardie would eat 50-60 crickets a day,… 8 inch. dragon is about 1 month old, and up to 60% of their body-lengh at this age is tail- it is not possible for any animal of this size to eat that much, this 60 crickets would be a size of 2 or 3 beardies like that…

    @weimorts12345 if you get a harness for your beardie you should take it outside to get natural sunlight. just like us all animals need sunlight to grow and remain happy. also, if you don't hold your beardie enough it could start becoming sad. secondly, if you have other animals in the house jumping up by his cage that could also cause him to stop eating because he's scared or stressed. i hope this helped. =]

    @Stevesheart1 the biting super/mealworm inside is a myth, its not true. you dont need to cut their head. only internal worm parasite can eat a lizards insides

  17. GeckoMan425 says:

    Almost all of these things are true. Except one thing. I personally don't cut off the super/mealworms head because she can digest it properly. However, I have a friend who had a baby Bearded Dragon and he fed it a wax worm. Well it ate it. He went somewhere and when he can back, the wax worm crawled through his little body and made a hole inside if it's stomach.

    @hasanarken
    You have a lot of questions but I'll just sum it up for you. Your baby bearded dragon may not be ready for mealworms because he was probably raised on a staple cricket/salad diet. Even though Crickets are more expensive, your Bearded Dragon will most likely eat them. Just remember to buy crickets that are as long as from one eye to one eye of your bearded dragon. Don't get to big of ones.If for what ever reason you can't get crickets, cut off the mealworms head just to be safe. 🙂
