I agree, my beardie could finish his salad bowl in seconds once some rocket enters his viv


Also as a rare treat..... Raspberries, only a few. Soo cute and they love them! But once again a rare treat only

It's my beardies birthday on Sunday so he's getting rocket, raspberries, locust and pachnoda grubs

Are there any bags of salad i can actually just get from the supermarket that are appropriate?
I agree mine likes rocket... also 'Collard Greens' is american name we call them Spring greens, they are readily available at supermarkets and are very cheap. Mine didnt seem to like them much but give them ago see what yours thinks of them.
Hope this helps

Mine are big rocket fans but as they are only 6 months old they are still salad dodging. I only put 10 leaves in per day with some fresh parsley and there is still a little left next day.

I work for sainsburys so getting the food in is a total giggle! I buy the Italian mix for about £1.50 a bag, it contains a load of leaves including rocket that my iggies love and regularly use additional roket leaves £1 a bag I think and baby leaf watercress £1.50 a bag to top up the quantity (everything's washed though) if we as staff get an increase to 20% discount we throw loads in the trolley and they eat like kings!!

I have fresh broccoli to put in but do I put the stalks in as well or just use the florets?

Ive used the Ruby red salad bag from Tescos and there seems to be everything in there he likes...........when he eats!
He has eaten brocolli too, but i only put in the florets not the stalk, dont know if thats right but he seemed to enjoy it.
Ive seen people say buttenut squash too? is that raw? Im thinking the lizards dont have cookers in the australian outback
Obviously i could be wrong!

I have put the florets in as the stalks seem a bit tough.

Butternut squash is the giant looking peanut and I think they have the insides.
