Zoo Med Natural Bearded Dragon Food – Adult Formula, 20oz
Bearded dragons are omnivores, which means that they need to eat both plant and animal foods to get the nutrition that they need. Young bearded dragons are rapidly growing, so they need lots of protein from insects to help fuel that growth. As they reach adulthood, their nutritional needs change from growth to maintenance, and so they start to eat more greens than insects.
Providing a varied diet to your pet bearded dragon is very important to both their mental and physical health. Using a rotation of different foods gives your pet new experiences and helps keep them active, engaged, and looking forward to what the next meal will bring. Variety also helps mimic a bearded dragon's natural diet in the wild, helping create the most balanced nutrition possible.
Zoo Med Natural Bearded Dragon Food – Adult Formula is a nutritious plant-based pellet diet fortified with added vitamins and minerals to help ensure your dragon's best health. Specifically formulated for the needs of adult bearded dragons, this diet is lower in protein and higher in fiber than the Juvenile version. Best of all, Zoo Med Natural Bearded Dragon Food contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives!
Instructions for Use:
Moisten pellets with water to increase acceptance. If your bearded dragon seems hesitant to try Zoo Med Natural Bearded Dragon Food – Adult Formula, mix the pellets with their usual greens and vegetables. Slowly reduce the amount of fresh vegetation at each feeding until your dragon will eat the pellets by themselves.
For best results, offer Zoo Med Natural Bearded Dragon Food – Adult Formula alongside live or canned feeder insects.
It is best practice to offer fresh food as the majority of your pet bearded dragon's diet. However, prepared diets like Zoo Med Natural Bearded Dragon Food – Adult Formula can add essential variety to their nutrition and are good to have on hand as a backup in case of emergency.
