Default What time do you feed your bearded dragon?

The lights go on at 7 so i give Toodles her first batch of calcium crickets at 9

When will Toodles need to next lot, just before lights out at 7 or before then??


Its got a nice big bowl of grated carrot and a few basil leaves in there all day

I am in the process of growning my own greens for it x

give him enough time to digest the food before lights out.

Zu and Woody get crickets about 8am (wake-up call is about 7.30) and salad around 5pm. As a treat they get locusts, but not until salad-time. The crickets eat the leftover salad during the day, and the locusts eat fresh salad at tea-time.

I'm new here, so take what I say with a pinch of salt for now...

I feed mine salad in the morning about 1 1/2 hours after lights come on and leave it in all day, and locusts/bugs later in the day normally around 4. They should not eat anything within the last 2 hours before lights out, with veg left in the viv any escaped bugs hopefully would nibble on that .
When it comes time to feed him bugs again, instead of putting some in, try and move things in the viv to find the escapees first, a lot of people feed theres in a RUB(really useful box) so they can monitor how many they eat which also stops them roaming the viv too
