And of course the pet shop are going to say they are not a staple...most pet shops don't stock them!travisf5 said:well i have a beardeddragon and i am getting fed up of crix cus i hate them so i have done reserch and people have sed at silkies are a good staple but my dad says he has done reserch and they are not good because if you use them has a staple they get hard to digest and the odd one can eat its way to the beardie brain and cause death!and my pet shop sed i cant because they are not a staple food. so i am lost lol!

TBH the fact that the silkie would have eaten it's way through the stomach wall, diaphragm, circulatory system (including heart, lungs, trachea), up the throat and through the back of the head would be more likey to kill anything than the brain factor! So no, urban myth my friendtravisf5 said:if you feed a bearded dragon silk worms has a staple diet can the silk worm eat in to the lizards brain and kill it??
