Cabbage causes gas. Did you know that lizards are not able to pass gas? Therefore, you should avoid feeding them cabbage?

You may think kale is healthy for your bearded dragon, but that is where you are wrong. Kale should be avoided.

You should definitely avoid finding bugs in the wild to give your bearded dragon. I have known people to go out in their yard and catch their dragon some crickets. This is not a good idea. Even if you do not spray your yard for pesticides, that does not mean those around you don't.


Raw Meat

Some people actually think they can keep raw meat in the freezer and feed it to their dragon. They think they can go to the grocery store and get their dragon meat. Again, this is a big no, no.

I have heard of people feeding their dragon frogs, toads and lizards only to report that their dragon died from it. This is not a good idea.



You should avoid feeding spinach to your dragon. This could cause calcium to build up in their body and that is not a good thing.

This is toxic to bearded dragons. Never feed your dragon lightening bugs as it will kill them. Keep your dragon out of reach of lightening bugs.
