Can Blue Tongue Skinks Eat Eggs?

Can Blue Tongue Skinks Eat Eggs?

Yes, you can offer your blue tongue skink eggs as a treat every once per month or so. However, eggs are very high in fat and cholesterol, which can contribute to obesity and other related health problems. Just like when it comes to feeding eggs to various other reptiles, you must only offer eggs that have been prepared with absolutely no oil, butter, or any other product containing dairy, as well as no seasoning like salt or pepper.

You can prepare eggs boiled or scrambled, whichever is most comfortable for you, some skinks may seem to prefer one or the other. You can give raw eggs to your pet skink, just ensure that you don't provide them with the eggshell as the shell is sharp and can cause damage internally.

Hi Bonnie — Egg yolks are a little fatty, but they’re full of vitamins, so they’re not bad for your skink at all, especially when paired with the egg white and shell or calcium powder.

Does removing the yolk from eggs before scrambling them make them a good source of safe protein for blue tongue skinks?
