Beard Month on November, 2017: Bearded dragon 3-5 month old question?
November, 2017 is Beard Month 2017. The Three-Month Beard Experiment The Three-Month Beard
Bearded Dragons reach their full size anywhere from 9-12 months of age. My Beardie had a stomach parasite which caused his growth to stop because the parasite was eating the food that went into his stomach, and making my poor beardie throwup the rest. He was smaller than normal about a month ago and all of the sudden skyrocketed and is back and if not ahead of track. If I were you, I'd take the poor thing from your irresponsible cousin so even if the beardie dies or is smaller than normal, he doesn't suffer. Who knows, maybe he'll be a bit smaller. He can still be happy though.
What to feed a 8 month old bearded dragon?
Bearded dragons are omnivorous, they need plenty of greens, fruits, and insects such as mealworms, superworms, and crickets. They also need their meals to be dusted with a calcium and vitamin d3 supplement. Avoid iceberg lettuce and wild-caught bugs, as these are not healthy for the bearded dragon.
I suggest reading this page;
If they're anything like my iguana or my leopard geckos, then it will be a voracious eater and will need to be fed once a day or once every other day. Also make sure it has a basking lamp with UV rays and plenty of water.
And next time do research before you bring the pet home to avoid possible complications :)
4 Month Old Bearded Dragon Diet?
Hey, he has a good diet and it is set up nicely and stick to that plan and he will be a nice healthy dragon.
Bearded Dragons are “Omnivorous” which means they feed on both plant and animal matter. When feeding live insects, ensure that the food is no larger then the width of the Bearded Dragons eyes. If too large, this could cause impaction or they could choke on the food. It is also best to feed young Bearded Dragons three times a day instead of one large meal to prevent this.
Bearded Dragons will eat a number of live insects such as crickets, locusts, mealworms, wax worms and cockroaches. When feeding plant foods, wash and finely chop and place in a dish. Your Bearded Dragon should be fed on 40-60% of plant matter when it is adult, while young offer this along side the live foods every other day.
We have listed below all the plant foods Bearded Dragons will take:
Fancy dark lettuces (not iceberg)
Mustard, Collard, Kale and Beet Greens
Nasturtium, Hibiscus and Dandelion leaves and flowers
The below foods should be fed as treats only:
good luck and hope this helps.
