You should also be aware of the nutritional needs of your young and adult dragons. Below is a list of the essential food ratios and variety required to establish a healthy diet for your bearded dragon and thus ensure a healthy and long life for your reptile.

For teenagers and adults:

• 50 percent: – pre-fed and laden insects with guts of crickets, mealworms, waxworms and once or twice give them pinky rats.

• 30 percent: – Calcium-rich green vegetables such as alfalfa, kale, mustard, dandelion, spinach, kale, broccoli and green beans.

• 10 percent: – other vegetable example zucchini, bell pepper, grated carrot, tomato and sprouts.

• 10 percent: – other foods such as bread, cereal and commercial bearded dragon food.

Adults can be fed once a day, while small ones can be fed twice a day. Young dragon’s vegetables should be cut into smaller pieces and given smaller insects so that they can be eaten more easily. Since puppies are growing rapidly, they should be given more protein and fed twice a day. The nutrient ratios should consist of 60 percent protein, 25 percent calcium-rich vegetables and 15 percent other foods.

By making a care list for your dragon, you reduce the risk of forgetting to do one of the chores and neglecting your pet.

Your dragons should be removed from their cage occasionally, so there are do’s and don’ts for properly caring for your pet:

1. Do not hold him by the tail or limbs.

2. Do not hold it suddenly without warning.

3. Take a slow and gentle approach.

4. Place one finger under the chin and stretch it under the body.

5. Move the fry with the perch on which they lie.
