A bearded dragon in the age of the baby is from birth to 4 months old. This is a time when bearded dragons are fragile and need the most care. Baby bearded dragon diet is also a major concern.
Unlike adults, baby bearded dragons have a strict diet and eat more meals a day. Baby bearded dragon food is also different, not any food you can give it.
To help the beginner who is not very experienced, we have compiled the baby bearded dragon diet list below.
Things you should feed a bearded dragon baby include:
Baby bearded dragon always needs to provide a significant amount of protein in a day to be able to develop comprehensively.
However, you should never choose crickets that are as big as the head of a baby bearded dragon. With such a size, a baby bearded dragon will have difficulty digesting it, maybe even cause paralysis.
You should divide about 40 crickets into 3 to 5 meals a day for a baby bearded dragon to eat. Each feeding should last 5 to 10 minutes.
Dubias is also a good option if you are looking to source baby bearded dragon protein. Although dubias is not an economical option, this insect has many advantages.
The first is that it is high in nutrients, helping to support the outstanding growth of baby bearded dragons. It is also “cleaner” than crickets, does not contain as many bacteria as crickets.
And dubias are a great size for baby bearded dragons to be easily digested.
You should divide 30 dubias into 3 to 4 meals for a baby bearded dragon to eat every day.
Baby bearded dragons still need greens for their diet, but not as much as an adult’s forage.
You should feed them at a rate of 15% green beards – 75% protein.
#4 Canxi and Vitamin
In addition to a diet with insects and vegetables, the baby bearded dragon should also be supplemented with calcium and vitamins. Give them calcium and vitamins 5 days a week, once a day.
