Bearded dragon: Nutrition

Nutrition in young bearded dragons

Nutrition in young bearded dragons

Young animals eat more animal food than plant foods. If the animals get older this will gradually change. 75% consists of animal food and 25% plant foods. It´s important to provide enough food with the right proportions of vitamin and calcium, especially to animals in the growth. A young ealthy animal may eat as much as they can (with some exceptions).

Because bearded dragons are cold-blooded, they can only digest their food at the right temperature. Without heat the body goes at rest and the food remains in the stomach undigested. This can lead to blockages in the stomach and intestines and/or vomiting. Make sure the animals have time to degest their food and don´t feed theme within 3 hours before the light or heat source goes out.
