Herbage / food-list

Approximately 60 to 70 % of diagnosed diseases in reptiles are directly or indirectly nutritionally ! A false diet shows not always immediately visible problems , but can strongly influence the life expectancy of Animals.

Bearded Dragons come from very dry , so- arid areas . Thus, their digestive tract is set on little nutritious , low-calorie and dry food . These include in the steppe many woody plants with a very high fiber content and indigestible carbohydrates such as cellulose .

-      Herbage should account for 80-90 % of the diet of an adult animal

-      No easily digestible carbohydrates such as sugar. So Fruit largely avoided .

-      Rather older parts of plants feed not that young fresh plant partsFoog

-      Offer regularly dried wild plants

-      Maintain a high fiber content

-      Little or no water-containing vegetable feed .

-      Observe the protein content of the plants .
