Diet & Nutrition for Bearded Dragons

Bearded Dragons should be fed a combination of live insects and vegetables along with some fruit. Adult dragons will also eat mice but they tend to thrive on a varied diet based on vegetables and insects.

  • Always chop up food for a bearded dragon where possible
  • Common insects available for reptiles are crickets, mealworms, superworms, and wax worms
  • As a rule, live food should be no larger than the half the size of your Bearded Dragon's head

Dietary Supplements

Your Bearded Dragon will need a calcium and vitamin D3 supplement. If your lizard is lacking D3 and calcium it can get metabolic bone disease which can be fatal. Breeding females, babies, and juveniles will need supplements more frequently.
