The Beardie Lifestyle

Q: What do bearded dragons eat anyways? Crickets? And what else? -Boni
What do you eat? Where do you live? - Fiona Bun

A: Oh you sweet dears, to be so concerned that I am getting enough food. In fact, Ms. Boni, I do eat crickets. I also eat superworms, the larvae of a beetle known as Zoophobas mario. All of my protein sources must be living, as I will not eat them served dried or frozen. They look like this:

In addition, I eat leafy green vegetables such as collard and turnip greens, an occassional sample of mango, a dash of green pepper, and squashes of the acorn and butternut variety.

Miss Fiona Bun, I still have not answered your question. Bearded dragons are naturally desert dwelling reptiles. I, however, and for reasons I do not understand, live in a 55-gallon glass terrarium. I do have a sandy substrate and UV lighting, with a nice, flat rock for my basking pleasure. I suppose this is adequate, although I certainly would be pleased to have some intellectually stimulating literary material available while I bask.

What kind of intellectually stimulating reading material do you like Chloe? I think the place to bask sounds good. It sounds like napping in the sun and I like to do that.

Hi, Chloe...

It sounds like you have a very varied diet. You talked about your wild cousins in earlier post - have you ever been out in the wild?
