Bearded Dragon Diet - Top 5 Guides

There is no shortage of advice on the optimal bearded dragon diet, so we aren’t going to reinvent the wheel here.  A few points keep in mind before you get into the guides we’ve found most helpful:

  • Size Food Appropriately: Food should not be wider than the space between its eyes.
  • Hydration: Most of their hydration will come from their food, so if the food is drying out before they finish eating it, consider misting to simulate a light rain in the desert.
